How does your pastor(s) approach preaching?
How many minutes of the Sunday gathering is committed to the proclamation and exposition of the Bible?
How often is the preaching “topical” drawing upon multiple Bible passages to support the various points of the sermon?
How often is the preaching “exposition” of a specific Bible passage?
One pastor I spoke with viewed preaching as “contextual and thus pneumatological.”
What I think he meant is that preachers have to be sensitive to the community they serve and thus must rely on the guidance of the Holy Spirit to make those “practical” decisions about what preaching looks like for their specific flock.
What principles guide you or your pastoral team in regards to the ministry of the Word?
