Quiet Hints, Chapter 12–"Building the Tower”

post date: February 2, 2010

Notes taken from Quiet Hints to Growing Preachers by Charles E. Jefferson, Chapter 12, “Building the Tower.”

“A church likes to feel itself in the grip of a man who knows not only where he is going but also by what stages the goal can in all probability best be reached.”

“Some men’s sermons are only bushwhackers fighting a desultory and bewildered skirmish, other men’s sermons sweep through the year like a well-disciplined battalion going forth to fight the battles of the Lord.”

“It is the misfortune of many men that they fear to take hold of large things.”

“Every preacher ought to see clearly at least one year ahead of him. If he can see five, it is still better.”

“There are certain facts of the Christian revelation which ought to be presented to a congregation every year.”
