My Sermon Template

Over the years my process for preparing messages has changed. Prayer, reading the Bible and reliance on the Holy Spirit are my mainstays in this process. However, I have found Andy Stanley’s process (I’ll probably post something more definitive on this at some point) helpful in making sure I’m simple and asking the right questions1. I tend to use Scrivener for my preparation and below is the template that I use which you are free to download and use.

Re-starting blogging with Blot

Blot.im

I have not blogged for a number of years. The simple reason is the maintenance needed with online systems. I did not want my content on someone else’s system. I also didn’t want the massive overhead of looking after a CMS such as Wordpress. Finally, I didn’t want it to cost a whole load of money.

I came across blot.im, which seems perfect. All my posts and content are stored in Dropbox and Blot does the rest. Configuration is (fairly!) simple to get your own domain up and running and within minutes your in business. It also means you can concentrate on the content. At $20 per year, what’s not to like!
