Why I Hated Preaching Class in Seminary

Of all the courses I took, the “class” I despised the most was Preaching. That sounds weird coming from an aspiring pastor but the truth is that too often I found the divine calling and unction of preaching reduced to an “art form.”

Preaching is not an art but a calling. When we view the proclamation of the Gospel as the former, we run the risk of celebrating the method and deifying the messenger.
