Shaping up the sermon

Over the past three days there has been an ongoing discussion about the shape of different sermons. It has not been an exhaustive list, and the descriptions of each shape have been deliberately pithy, with just enough detail to provoke a response. However,that has not put people off contributing to the discussion. Comments have pointed out the limitations of each shape and the amendments which might improve them.

Now is your chance to ‘come clean’ on what shape your sermons tend to be. The aim is to indicate the shape you do preach, rather than the shape you feel you ought to. There is space at the box to add your own suggested shape.  Please use the comments box if you would like to explain more about what you have put.
