Should We Take Notes During Sermons?

AMenzelBuchenhalleKÖ1868Interesting food for thought:

“I have often discouraged the taking of notes while I am preaching. . . . The first and primary object of preaching is not only to give information. It is, as Edwards says, to produce an impression. It is the impression at the time that matters, even more than what you can remember subsequently. . . . While you are writing your notes, you may be missing something of the impact of the Spirit.”

~Martyn Lloyd-Jones, The Puritans: Their Origins and Successors (Edinburgh, 1987), page 360
