Preaching in Saul's Armor
Peter Mead at Biblical Preaching has a good post on preaching as you are, i.e. not trying to preach in Saul's armor. Mead writes, "I recently wrote about preaching to ordinary people. It should go without saying that we preach as ordinary people." I agree, but unfortunately, the ordinary people we preach to often have extraordinary expectations of their rather ordinary preacher. The problem is exacerbated (at least in the US) by a congregations frequent exposure to size extraordinary preachers and preaching through Christian television, radio, and now the internet. Make sure you read Mead's entire post.
