Preaching and Seminary

Over at the Placement Reflections blog Ed Eubanks writes about the importance of seminary students actually preaching sermons in churches before graduation. Interestingly enough, I reflected on my own seminary experience and realized that in my 3 Homiletics courses I have only preached 2 sermons. I then realized it was possible to leave with an MDiv and not preach any sermons whatsoever.

How important is it to preach in seminary? I am begining to feel a little unease about the small amount of preaching that I have done and will take steps to increase these opportunities before graduating.
