Do you want to gain more attention from your congregation during your preaching? Do you want to make your sermon more attractive to people’s ears? Do you want to render your sermon more understandable and memorable? Here is one way to do that, says Rick Blackwood, the senior pastor of Christ Fellowship Church in Miami. His premise is this: The more senses you stimulate in preaching, the higher levels of learning you can achieve in people. In other words, multi-sensory preaching will accomplish higher levels of attention to, and comprehension and retention of, the sermon message for today’s multimedia-saturated people.
