The Teaching Pastor

Mike Pasquarello does his best work in a coffee shop . . . and the seminary classroom!

May 9, 2018

From Duke to North Carolina (a pilgrimage of preaching . . . and college basketball). The difference between looking at the Bible and looking through the Bible. Pastors are competitive? No, say it isn’t so. Finding a group of pastors to root for and debrief with might be an antidote for grinding away in isolation. Learning about preaching by doing biography work on voices from the past. The joy of preaching from a passage you have never preached from. When you put a sermon together, do one thing, and do one thing well.
