And... yeah... Amen

While reviewing the sermon from Sunday morning with the Minister of the Word at church (which we do after most services) I mentioned a pet hate of mine.

Actually, it was something that majorly got under my skin at my home church, but was on display last Sunday. The sermon trailed off with an... ah... yeah... amen.

It reminded me of the three most important parts of the sermon to prepare and practice.

The start – To get you off to a comprehensible, solid, confident beginning.
Transitions between points – To give the sermon good flow.
The end – To finish with a bang, not a whimper.
