This topic was assigned following a discussion between my mentor and I when we decided to stick to the theme of Trinity Sunday.
Step 1: I brainstormed ideas about the topic (the Holy Spirit), use the Internet to search for inspiration and readings.
Step 2: This was my first go at writing the sermon. I did this in longhand because it made it easier to add to whenever inspiration struck. This was written in three sessions.
Step 3: This was typed up. I read it out loud to myself and made amendments. I then sent it to my mentor for checking.
Step 4: I made the amendments suggested by my mentor (a couple of introductory sentences). I read it into a voice recorder. I made further amendments as I listened to the recording.
I added potential breathing breaks (green lines).
Step 5: deliver sermon.
Sounds so easy!
Good night and God bless x
