Once again Sunday is upon us.
As I have done so often in the past, today I make of myself an instrument of humble service to my fellow Preachers out there, who are frantically scouring their old college Bible class notes for sermon ideas for tomorrow's lesson. Rest easy. Once again, you've come to the right place. I'm among the top 3 Preachers I know (actually, the top two - but you didn't hear that from me).
So today I want to provide you Preachers out their with my "Top Ten Best Sermon Starters". They are pulpit tested, and Preacher approved, and guaranteed to get you started preaching even if you don't have a sermon. These things are like sermon bullion. Just start saying these words as soon as you mount the pulpit, and SOMEthing should catch fire - or you'll GET fired, either way.
Of course, if you happen to want to use these Sermon Starters online then they would be Blermon Starters...but most of you already knew that. Anyhow...here they are:
10.) What a joy it is to...
9.) My wife Gidget...
8.) Turn in your Bibles if you would to...
7.) Now THAT's what I call a pot luck announcement!
6.) How many here love grape juice? You're in luck...
5.) Ever seen a Winne The Pooh tattoo?
4.) Today I wanna preach on the "99 Reasons to..."
3.) Where am I? Any ideas?
2.) Who are YOU people?
1.) Blah, blah, blah, blah, husker du, on 10, hike!
As together we stand and sing.
