Fearful of Judgment


In the article in Christian Century “Stand and Deliver” that I referenced recently, a statement was made that is not in anyway new, but which struck me.  It is a quote from a former stand-up comic who is now a preacher:  “You can’t do preaching or comedy without some speaking skills…if you’re terrified or fearful of judgment.”

I am not positive why that phrase “fearful of judgment” struck me powerfully , but it did. 

Are we preachers “fearful of judgment”? Whose? Peoples?  Or God’s?
