Homiletics 101

Useful tidbit I learned in yeshiva:

Never, ever start a devar Torah with the words "In this week's parashah". People will tune you out before you even have a chance to get started. Open with an interesting question or story to capture people's attention and then you have a fighting chance to maintain their interest.
