Preaching As An Art Form with Dave Lomas

Most times I don’t “finish” a sermon until 7am on Sunday when I have to close the computer and send my notes to the media team. The process for me is part investigation, part devotion, and part screen writing. I have recently begun to embrace the challenge of the writing process (20+ years in!) and also for the first time I’m beginning to own the fact that what I do is an art form. - Dave Lomas 

Dave speaks with Mike about his gradual understanding of sermon preparation as a creative art form, as well as the value of embracing obscurity in the age of livestreaming and celebrity pastors.
