The Intended Audience

I am not sure how many people read this blog, but I know there are a few. I post my sermons and stuff on two websites--this one and a MySpace site. Generally, the sermons that I post are the manuscripts of the sermons I have preached in my two churches. Most of the people who read them are either friends who understand the context of the original delivery, or are members of the churches I serve who missed a Sunday, or are snowbirds, etc.

Recently, over on the MySpace site, it has come to my attention that there are readers who do not fit either description, and to them, something I have preached and then posted may not neccesarily translate from the pulpit to the public written word well.

So, let me say this--I have not spent a lot of time editing the sermons for an audience wider than people I know and/or serve. I probably should. If I was to develop a wide non-church member reading audience, I probably would need to. I am not quite there yet, but I will try to read my posts as I post them with a wider, non-contextual audience in mind.


  1. Sounds like there is a story or two behind this... Can't wait to hear more!

  2. I am beyond pissed at you, still.
