So, I've started a new fictional piece, and one of my characters is a pastor (or possibly another small church official like a Reverend, haven't completely decided yet). The religious element is a key element in the plot. I've considered the option of making a few sermons he uses as a plot/story device. I have already read a few books on creating sermons as well as talked to a local pastor who has given me some pointers, but I realize that WF has a wide selection of members. Any pastors/the like or simply people with religious studies experience, care to offer some advice on structure or things I should remember. I'm really just looking for what's considered the standard of such things, not necessarily specific example.
