I’ve been thinking lately about a quote from John Stott in his book “Between Two Worlds” where he makes the comment that sermonettes produce Christianettes. It’s one of those classic books that you just never get rid of. If you Google that quote, you find all kinds of articles and discussions about what is a sermon versus a sermonette.
But the question I’ve been mulling on in relation to that is, does the length of a sermon make a sermon more or less effective? And in this context, is a longer sermon a better sermon? Is a shorter sermon, a sermonette, less effective?
