Bishop Quayle: Preparing a Preacher and Delivering Him

In an excellent article on "Preaching Evangelistically " Myron image Augsburger quotes Methodist Bishop Quayle as saying

Preaching is not so much preparing a sermon and delivering it, as it is preparing a preacher and delivering him.

We can have all of the techniques and knowledge down, but it is ultimately the personality through whom God speaks. 

I am not sure that we take this idea of a new "incarnation" seriously enough.  Maybe I'll write more on it someday.
