Preaching Prep Experiment
After attending a workshop on preaching, I gave myself a self-assignment to intentionally experiment with my preaching preparation and "performance" style(s). Immediately following the workshop I used a journal page to identify specific resources that I could use during the next few months for my "continuing ed" on preaching. Some portions of the homework assignment were open-ended as I asked myself to remain open to the muse of preaching prep. After several months I went back and wrote on top of the original layout what I had learned about the experience in experimenting with preaching prep and presentation. Tip: Sharpie oil-based markers are excellent for writing the "top layer" as they easily mark on top of most surfaces.
