Pulpiteering. Spend time thinking about the members before preaching. Do not start with the members being adversaries. Build a team spirit with the Devil being the other team. If you cannot get them to laugh you cannot get the truth to them. Learn to laugh at yourself. If you do not use the Bible, you are not preaching the Bible. Young preachers use more Scriptures. You can only be as hard as you are soft. Fight the impulse to fight those who fight you. Love the members while preaching to the members. Leave them with hope.
