Steve Matthewson over at Preaching Today blog suggests Six Disciplines for Taking Your Preaching to the Next Level. In his list he gives #3. Study the biblical text and prepare sermons in community. That has always seemed to be an unattainable ideal for me. Have any of you ever had any success in doing something like that? I would of course presume that it would be much more viable for preachers who use the Common Lectionary. Any insights?
