Anchors for the soul

Ray Van Neste shares a voice from the pew to say that Christians do indeed want stubstantive sermons:
Preachers are often told that people really are not interested in substantive content in sermons. I know of pastors who have been severely criticized for dealing with texts that people did not find easily digestible, or useful enough in drawing crowds. Shallow, generic “life-thoughts” will appeal to some, but there is an increasing number of people who are crying out for substantive teaching as they yearn to know God and to have something weighty enough to serve as an anchor for their souls.
Amen. And at GospelDrivenLife, Mark Lauterbach shares one of those soul anchors from 1 Peter: the sufferings of Jesus.
