Force or Farce?


Father forgive us, for we know not how ridiculous we appear.

The challenge every pastor faces while preaching is to sound intelligent enough to be convincing but down-to-earth enough to be relatable. It’s a delicate balancing act that requires difficult decisions: Do I use a Greek or Hebrew word to hopefully shed new light on a familiar passage (and potentially confuse folks) or do I tell a personal story to hopefully better connect scripture to life application (and potentially become too vulnerable)?

Whatever route we take, I think most of us secretly envision ourselves as Yoda-esque imparters of sage wisdom.

Thank you, church folks, for not telling us how often we sound like Jar Jar instead.
