Tips for applying Song of Solomon

Okay, since I preached on Song of Solomon last Sunday (and still have my job as far as I know) here are a few bits of advice… things I learned from my experience.
1. Always get Blake Johnson to do the reading when the text is from Song of Solomon. I thought that was a nice shade of red, Blake.

2. There is really never a reason to mention either Barry Manilow or Billy Ray Cyrus when preaching about Solomon’s greatest of love songs.

and 3. (Probably the most important lesson) Do NOT go home and tell your wife that she looks like a flock of goats just descended from Mt. Gilead onto her head… OR that she is built like the tower of David. Those are cultural references that DO NOT translate well.

Hope this helps!
