I understand more and more pastors, youth pastors, and family ministry folks are preaching from their tablets or phones. After all, having the Scripture right there is handy – even logical.
I still think you should preach from a physical Bible. (There…I said it.)
This goes for more than “preaching from the pulpit.” This applies to speaking to students at youth group, teaching the younger kids in Sunday school, reading the Bible as a small group, or delivering a keynote or breakout session at a conference.
