30 (40) Days of Blogging [preachersinstitute.com]

At the Preachers Institute, we are intensely interested in helping pastors, preachers and evangelists prepare themselves for the art of preaching. Many Orthodox preachers, priests, deacons, teachers and evangelists have entertained the idea of starting a blog – something which would be of immense interest and help to their flocks – but are concerned about being able to consistently produce material day after day. This exercise also has some excellent benefits for sermon preparation as well!

Therefore, beginning November 15th, we will be starting 30 (40) days of blogging!

If you have thought about starting a blog (but feared there was no way you could do it consistently), or if your parishioners have suggested you should start one, this is for you.

If you aren’t sure you can actually blog for 30 (or 40) days in a row, take heart. We’ll be offering information, stories, topics and suggestions to make it easier for you on those ‘sticky’ days when nothing seems to be happening.

We will commence blogging publication on Nov. 15th, and complete our blogging kickoff exercise on Dec. 15th, with an eye to complete an entire 40 days of blogging on Christmas, Dec. 25th. In other words, we’ll blog down Advent/Nativity Fast this year as an exercise in diligence to obeying the Lord’s command to teach everything he has commanded.

In Christ,
