Pause For Thought
From Father Brian D’Arcy, a Catholic Passionist priest:
"As someone who has to preach often – too often for my own good, and the congregation’s – my recurring nightmare is that I’ll turn people away from God through boredom.
Years ago a cartoon like book was published with the intriguing title of 101 Things to do during a Dull Homily. From memory these are a few tips to help you survive a boring sermon.
Send a note to the organist, asking if he (she) plays requests.
Start at the back of the church and crawl to the front, under the seats, without being noticed.
See if a yawn is really contagious.
Using the church bulletin as raw material, test fly a new collection of paper airplanes.
And lastly: Slap your neighbour and see if they turn the other cheek. If not raise your hand and tell the preacher.
My favourite story about preaching comes from Northern Ireland. There was a country pastor who jealously guarded his small congregation. After many years he relented and took a holiday. He allowed a visiting preacher to take the Sunday service. He warned him to be brief and not to alienate his busy farming community.
On Sunday he preached for ten minutes. A man stood up at the back and shouted alleluia alleluia, alleluia. Pleased, he went on for another five minutes. The same jumps up and shouts alleluia alleluia alleluia. The preacher does another five minutes. This time man shouted alleluia three times and walked out, followed by the entire congregation.
The Pastor returned during the week and called the visiting preacher, who told him the congregation were welcoming. He told him one man had stood up and proclaimed alleluia three times.
“I’m afraid you don’t know the accent round these parts” the pastor told him. “He wasn’t shouting alleluia alleluia. He was shouting (in a tight Northern Ireland accent) “that’ll do ye, that’ll do ye.” "
