How smoking chickens teaches pastors how to prepare to preach

Last Wednesday, I invited a good friend/pastor of our church and a Zambian farmer into our pastor's class to share a bit. I first shared the video below with the pastors to exhort them in their sermon preparation. It is the seven steps of preparing, marinating, and smoking a chicken and then how that relates to the 7 day preparation of preparing a sermon. And then Pastor Chris shared a bit about his journey to pastoring and some of the lessons that he has learned along the way. He also shared about his experience raising sheep and how that relates to some of the Bible Psalms and stories. It was a great encouragement to my pastors to have him share his heart, failures, weaknesses and stories.
