New preaching series at Sycamore

Brian Colmery is beginning a series on preaching at Sycamore. Here's a sample from the series introduction:

What we are interested in, then, is not good preaching, but great preaching. The Word of God does not go out void, and we must understand walking into this that preaching that is focused on God’s word is good preaching. Yet, as preachers, we must move beyond an interest in being good. We must yearn to be great (this is not sinful ambition, but a full immersion into the calling we have been given). And we must learn what greatness in preaching is, because few of us have given much thought to why we evaluate preaching the way we do.

Brian is an excellent writer and serious thinker. I look forward to his series.
