Preaching Journal

Preached for the first time in a few years at Childs Hill Baptist Church, the eglwys I grew up in. I’m trying to get as much experience as I can in preparing series and preaching systematically through books of the Bible. So in the morning it was Jonah 3 and in the evening it was Mark 3 & 4, having been doing the Mark stuff at our Youth Clubs in Aber & Jonah twice at midweek meetings and once on a Sunday in A.P..

The Jonah one was a standard call and response; urge for repentance sermon. The evening was a bit more unusual, I wanted us to look at the parable of the sower, but we looked at it in the context of the previous chapter’s events. It’s here in chapter 3 that we meet four types of people — disciples; Pharisees; great crowd; Judas — who all have different responses to Jesus, the latter three having a negative response. We compared those four groups to the four types of ground in the parable of the sower.
