Who was the best preacher you’ve ever heard? What made the preaching great? Ever thought about it? I hadn’t much till I came across this piece in The National Catholic Registry. I grew up in a small town attending both Methodist and Baptist churches, then later in life listened to preachers from many different churches and the radio and TV. I have heard a many pastors and some preachers. The preachers who really stand out for me are the ones who prick your heart and help you see truth through a glass that is a little less dark.
Pat Archbold has made a list of qualities he values. I think it’s worth a read.
