There is nothing old fashioned about preaching if done properly. We live in an age when we are told people cannot listen to someone speaking without visual aids for longer than ten minutes; we are told the screen giving the text is required if folk are to take on board what is being said in any meaningful way; we are told preaching is now redundant. Bishop Curry proved otherwise and all those faces, waiting to be bored, said it all. They were bemused, they were alert, they were surprised in many different ways but none of them bored. The art of communication is a great gift if used wisely and with integrity and Bishop Curry did. He gave millions around the world a taste of the dynamic energy of the gospel and we should thank God he did.
