Do you know the name of a place from which a priest used to preach sermons in church? No? Well, in Polish it's called 'ambona'. Here is the compound:
I don't know how many of you remember those days when you heard a sermon being preached from a church pulpit... I am old enough to remember. My grandmother took me to church every Sunday for a mass and despite the fact I didn't understand much from the preaching then, I do remember that a priest would climb a church pulpit and speak long and emotively so that people would often cry...
I think it was good that priests preached from church pulpits. I can't give you any arguments for this, but I feel it was better than preaching almost straight from the altar.
What is your opinion?
