A Good Sermon

Calling himself an aggressive cyclist, religious historian Keith Watkins reports on four sermons he heard this summer on one of his journeys. He asks: What makes for a good sermon?

He lists four characteristics from his experience:
  1. Personable speaker
  2. Biblically focused
  3. Oriented to life today
  4. Appropriate to the liturgical setting
Check Keith's account and tell me what you think makes for a good sermon.
