How often or to what degree do you recycle sermons?
I wrote a 3 year cycle when the 3 year lectionary came out. I enjoy the feel of the crinkled yellowing notes in the pulpit.
It depends... Has this congregation heard this sermon before? If yes, do some tinkering, if no, recycle.
I use previous sermons as a base and edit some and use fresh illustrations if needed.
I sometimes look over my old stuff, but usually I write something new.
I write something new unless I'm in a real bind and then I might recycle.
No! Each preaching moment must be a fresh expression of biblical and theological truth.
