SERMONETTES are mini-sermons or short messages used for devotions, teaching or communion.
How To Write A Sermonette of Mini-sermon
You will find that sermonettes or mini-sermons are not easy to write because sermonettes or mini-sermons still require structure. If you get the structure right, then sermonettes are definitely easier to write.
1. Structuring A Sermonette or Mini-Sermon
A normal sermon has a three-part structure — an introduction, a body, and a conclusion. The introduction introduces the main preaching point or the big idea, the body expands and explains the main preaching point with sub-points and incidental sub-points, and the conclusion concludes the sermon by reinforcing the main preaching point.
I usually use the analogy of an airplane flight to describe a sermon. The take off is the introduction. The actual flight is the body, and the landing is the conclusion. To have a smooth flight, you must get all three right. To have a great sermon, you also must get the introduction, body, and conclusion right.
Using this structure, a normal sermon would take thirty (30) minutes or so to deliver. However, a sermonette has a shorter delivery span. A semonette would take five (5) minutes or so to deliver.
You can use this structure to construct sermonettes. However, you will need to compress the content so that your sermonette is delivered within five (5) minutes or so.
By the way, you can deliver sermonettes or mini-sermons in two ways — deductively or inductively.

3. Inductive Structure For Sermonettes
If you use an inductive or deductive structure for your sermonettes or mini-sermons and compress your content, you will find sermonettes or mini-sermons easier to write.
