I wonder whether as lay preachers they will have some different concerns, especially if they are itinerant going from pulpit to pulpit? Being an occasional preacher is such a contrast with those who are in pastoral charge week-in-week-out. I expect a range of issues to emerge such as:
- personal - confidence, building experience, developing gifting
- communication - how best to prepare and deliver sermons
- congregation - dealing with very different contexts with all that is involved in planning worship etc.
- culture - are there changes that make preaching more or less difficult?
