the craft of preaching


Putting together words
springing out of thoughts
engendered by The Word
brought together 
sifted, sorted
presented
as raw material
not the finished article
Encouragement for others
to pick up on
and improve
or develop
like traveling unfamiliar paths.
Journeying deep enough
to stimulate growth
losing sight of the beginning
but forging new journeys
into the unknown.
A veritable warren
of trails
some that peter out
some that lead
to new discoveries
unforeseen
unanticipated
inspiring hope
and truth
and belief.
And, sometimes,
simply inviting:
Come, sit here awhile,
find rest and refreshment
balm for the soul.
So many tasks demanded
of one act.
The craft of preaching.
