Yes, it took this long for me to learn how to get podcasts with iTunes, but thanks to our church youth director, I am not hip, with it, etc, etc.
I’m looking for input from whoever is out there on your favorite preaching/teaching podcasts. Which churches/preachers do you like best? Leave a link to their site if you think about it too. I’m building my podcast subscriptions.
One of my goals this year is to listen to really good preaching because I think growing as a preacher is probably something like growing as a writer according to Stephen King: “Read a lot, and write a lot.” Those are his rules for growth as a writer and he says there is no way around it.
Preaching a lot certainly helps. There’s no substitute for doing it to get better at it. But if my batting mechanics are off then more practice doing the same old thing without a reference point. Thus, I’m thinking that an appropriate adaption of King’s dictum to writers for preachers would be “Hear a lot of preaching, and do a lot of preaching.”
