Created or curated sermons?

David Murray has some helpful thoughts on sermon preparation in his article Creator or curator? today. I find myself in the creator camp, but I know the appeal of curation, it’s a time thing. Somehow I just can’t bring myself to abandon creation. I know the difference it makes to my understanding of Scripture, so I’m sure the hearers do too. The amount of time that it requires is definitely a worthwhile investment.

Ironically, this is a curation posting!

One thought on “Created or curated sermons?

  1. Paul C

    I wonder if the appeal to curation, when it comes to sermons, is more based on making ourselves seem smarter than we actually are, as opposed to just a time thing? As you say, there is a strong appeal to simply round up a few good thoughts, add your spin, then deliver.
