'Almost Critical' Simplicity

I do not preach the same sermons again, yet I do go over previous sermons to see what I preached. What strikes me often is that the structure and the vocabulary of my sermons are now much simpler -- yet without reducing content. Today I consider that cosmopolitan congregations make simplicity "almost critical" to ministry -- simply for the sake of including a wider Church in one's preaching than would otherwise be possible.
