Preaching sermons that connect people with God
Paperback |192 pp |216 x 135 mm
'A good sermon always changes us: nobody who hears one can ever be the same again. How important it is, then, that Lorraine has written this fine exploration of the need for the preacher to find space and peace to connect with God in order truly to connect with those who hear her talk.'
'I wonder Cavanagh thinks that she has just written a book about preaching. She has, but she has written about so much more besides. I believe I have found my religious book of the year already.'
Waiting on the Word is an exploration of the gift of preaching and of becoming an effective communicator someone who is able to connect with peoples innate desire for God.
In an age of soundbites and information overload, Lorraine Cavanagh believes that we can lose sight of Gods real work in the world. Through waiting on the Word that abides in the preachers own heart, and in the hearts of the people, the preacher can learn to speak the deep truth which comes with knowing God and which will teach and inspire. This unique book also gives practical advice for dealing with conflicting emotions, resistance and passive aggression, as well as for improving voice projection and the confident use of space.
