Frederick Buechner: Out of Touch, but with What?

frederickbuechnerlrg"The trouble with many sermons is not so much that the preachers are out of touch with what is going on in the world or in books or in theology, but that they are out of touch with what is going on in their own lives and in the lives of the people they are preaching to. Whether their subject is hope or faith or charity or anything else, let them speak out of the living truth of their own experience of those high matters. Let them have the courage to be themselves." --Frederick Buechner, The Living Pulpit
