Lauren Winner encourages preachers to consider sermons as an act of pastoral care for the community and reminds preachers to be mindful of the needs and emotions of congregants in preparing for their sermons.

“I would encourage all of us to think about preaching not only as proclamation … but also as prayer for our congregation and as pastoral attentiveness and pastoral care for our congregation.”
