Sermon Preparation by Terry Virgo

In this segment of Terry Virgo’s video series he is asked, How long does it take him to take to prepare a sermon? His answer is illuminating and strangely encouraging given that he is such a well known and well respected preacher. It is worth watching the whole video:

“The time it takes to prepare can so vary with the theme. Sometimes you can be living with the theme weeks before you preach it . . . Other times in the week run up to the preach I haven’t got a clue what I am going to do. Im looking at a blank sheet and thinking “O God, is there anything interesting at al in the Bible?” Its a real challenge, week in week out, especially if you are preaching to the same congregation, and if you are not preaching a series.”
