The Anecdotage of Glasgow
Rev. Dr. Norman MacLeod as a sermon reader


THE reverend brother and biographer of the late minister of the Barony Parish Church states that, "Although at one period he occasionally wrote his sermon seven times before he preached it, there were years during which he seldom wrote any discourse fully out, but preached from notes in which the sequence of ideas was clearly marked. These notes, though often joted on Saturday afternoon, were the result of constant cogitation during the week." The following anecdote is appended as a note

"He was once preaching in a district in Ayrshire, where the reading of a sermon is regarded as the greatest fault of which a minister can be guilty. When the congregation dispersed, an old woman, overflowing with enthusiasm, addressed her neighbour:

"Did ye ever hear onything sae graní? Wasna that a sermon?" But all her expressions of admiration being met with a stolid silence, she shouted:

"Speak, woman ! wasna that a sermon?"

"Ou aye," replied her friend sulkily, "but he read it."

"Read it !" cried the other with indignant emphasis, "I wadna hae cared if he had whistled it!"
