me we God you we

Those of you familiar with Andy Stanley's approach to preaching may recognize the "me we God you we" way of organizing a message. It's fleshed out in much greater detail in his book on preaching called "Communicating for Change." In fact, he uses the term "communicator" instead of preacher. Not a slight change in and of itself.

Me = starting with a personal revelation or disclosure.

We = finding common ground with your audience.

God = bringing God's truth to your one point.

You = applying your one point to the listener's life

We = inspiring a vision of what life would be like if everybody got it, too.
