When you look at them, you will know when you have connected or if they need more explanation.

    You will know if you are losing people or if they are leaning in. You will see if people laugh at your joke or if it bombs. You will see if people emotionally connect to a story.

Good eye contact while preaching is not a natural tendency, it is a learned habit. You have to be intentional about it. You have to practice. Whenever you preach next, look left, right, and middle. Left side of the room.
