Preaching and transformation of the mind

Blogger Adrian Warnock, a psychiatrist, is beginning a series on preaching and transformation of the mind. Here's an excerpt from his first entry:
We have to see our minds as like spongues. They can be squeezed and moulded not just by propositions and a conscious acceptance of certain truths but by what we are exposed to on a dripfeed basis day by day. We must not passively allow this process to happen.

Our brains are neural networks that create associations and structures between words and concepts- it is in my view those very associations that good preaching is designed to change.
I look forward to the rest of the series.
