One of the most daunting tasks a person can undertake is preaching. Every seven days you must stand before a group of people and offer a word from God to them. If your week gets filled with appointments, Sunday is still on the way.

A preacher must wrestle with the text before he can adequately present it. There are times when clarity unfolds slowly. Yet, the preacher must find the right words to describe The Word.

About the Book

For over twenty-five years, I have been privileged to stand in front of people and preach. In his mercy, God has allowed me to repent of many of my earliest sermons. “The Cure for Insomnia” is a collection of essays that first appeared on my blog (kenhensley.com). I do not claim to be an expert in preaching, only a fellow traveller – and one that is still learning along the way.

One of the most daunting tasks a person can undertake is preaching. Every seven days you must stand before a group of people and offer a word from God to them. If your week gets filled with appointments, Sunday is still on the way.

A preacher must wrestle with the text before he can adequately present it. There are times when clarity unfolds slowly. Yet, the preacher must find the right words to describe The Word.

Preaching is also one of the most fulfilling tasks a pastor can undertake.

As one entrusted with the word of God and people’s lives, we stand at a unique intersection. We have the opportunity to meet real people with real needs – and do so in the power of the Holy Spirit. On any given weekend, we will stand before a variety of people, each expecting to hear from God.

My hope is that “The Cure for Insomnia” might provide a few insights and a little bit of encouragement as you undertake the task of preaching.

About the Author
Ken Hensley

Ken Hensley was born and raised in Peoria, IL, and did his undergraduate work at Freed-Hardeman University and graduate work at Bethel Theological Seminary.

Ken has led churches in several of America's finest cities - San Diego, San Francisco, Atlanta, and now Denver.

In 1999, Ken entered the dot com world and co-founded a business that enabled non-profits to make better use of emerging technologies. During this same time, he also worked in the pre-launch days at Christianity.com - when the coffee and donuts were free and foosball breaks were required.

In 2005, Ken was hired by Stadia: New Church Strategies to return to San Diego and start LifePoint Christian Church. During his time at LifePoint Ken had the pleasure of seeing people who were disconnected from God find their way back to him. Ken also had the privilege of partnering with other new churches to reach San Diego and beyond.

The Hensleys now live in Denver, where Ken is the Senior Pastor at Mountainview Christian Church in Highlands Ranch. He also serves on the Board of Directors for Church Planters of the Rockies, an organization that starts new churches along the Front Range of Colorado.
