Wordle Preaching

Listen. Listen right. This is brilliant. Someone in our church transcribed the Bishop's sermon at a recent induction service, from the recording, and put the text into Wordle.

Now we have a word cloud showing the words the Bishop used the most, excluding prepositions, conjunctions, articles etc.

God is the biggest word. Now shouldn't that be right? So I did it for my recent talk at Trendlewood about friendship. Here's the result. Church, people, friends. Could be worse. I think we have ourselves a new preaching tool.

I like it.

Wonder what various credal statements / bases of faith would come out like? Might try it.
