Preaching What People Understand

"Ministers generally avoid preaching what the people before them will understand. . . . They studiously avoid being personal, in the sense of making anyone present feel he is the man. I have always pursued a different course. I have often said, 'Do not think I am talking about anybody else; for I mean you, you and you.' "
