    Good afternoon,
    I know I've asked this before, but thought I would get more responses the 2nd time around. But how many of you save your sermons on paper? I.e., store them in a file cabinet. This is what I've been doing for 11 years now and I'm about to fill up my 2nd file cabinet and I'm already short on space. I've saved them on disc and usb drives in case of re-checking or needing reference.
    My favorite prof. saved all of his and I guess that's what I've been taught but just wanting other people's opinion.
    Thank you.

    Nope.. I don't.
    I keep a special file on my computer... back it up on another computer.. and keydrive.. then at the end of the year, burn them to a disk and file them away with my other disks.

    I save some on paper, disc, or even notated in the margins of my Bible.

    More years ago than I care to thnk about I was taking the measurements of a church, inside and out. From the measurements I was to make a drawing of the church for an architect. While I was in the sanctuary I noticed a sermon on the pulpit. It was the sermon preached the just past Sunday. I looked at it and was amused to see two dates written in the margin; one for the just past Sunday and a second about ten years previously with the name of another church and town penciled in.

    Bingo.

    Sometimes I'll make some notes in the margins of my notes prior to entering the pulpit that I'll take back and enter into the manuscript/file on PC, but I don't keep the paper. I do try to keep a CD and rip it to a pc file, because the sermon isn't in the notes, it's what is delivered.

    Yes, all 64 years of sermons are neatly filed in file folders and in cardboard filing boxes and stacked in a room up stairs. Each one is dated, places preached and responses, if any.

    No computers in the early days, and am not that trustworthy of saved discs or cd's or whatever you call them. I like to read the page.

    Cheers,

    Jim

    I write my outline in the margins in my Bible. The research notes etc.. are in a notebook with the date, text and subject manner for future reference. The pastor I served with prior to transitioning from youth to pastorate has his sermons dating back to the "50s on regular notebook paper. His outlines are fascinating to look at to say the least.
