Last week I posted a survey on some social media: here is the question:
Think back to the most recent sermon or talk you heard in your church: how would you describe it? Please tick all the descriptions that apply.
Just over 60 people responded and here is the summary of the results:
Note the following:
- Most people (66%) thought that what they heard was well thought out and that the preacher did a good job of explaining the Bible.
- Almost 2/3 were inspired and encouraged to change.
- No one was left feeling guilty or confused.
- Slightly more than half felt the sermon left them feeling glad to be a Christian. That’s good, but should that number be higher?
If you would like to add your voice to the survey, here is the link.
And if anyone is looking for a topic for some post-graduate research, feel free to use this as a starting point.
