A Preaching Journal

I've been preaching now for nearly 25 years and over that time I've kept my sermon manuscripts and sermon notes. Recently I began a new practice - a preaching journal. A preaching journal for me is a spiral bound notebook where I record my sermon preparation. This includes verse by verse exegetical notes, thoughts that might be useful in the sermon and a list of books or other materials that could be helpful for preparation or quoted in the sermon. A preaching journal will simplify future work on a passage since you've got a running start from your previous effort.
