Recently, I was doing a session with pastors on how to preach better sermons for today’s congregations. When I advised them to stop making their sermon notes rhyme, something in the room shifted.
The older pastors recoiled in horror at the idea. But the younger pastors became like bobble-heads nodding up and down. So I paused to point out the difference.
“Am I right on this one?” I asked the young leaders. Their nodding increased. So I went on, supported by my bobble-head choir of young leaders, to explain why I no longer make my sermon notes rhyme or alliterate.
