In addition to reducing the burden upon a single pastor, sermon planning in community helps with providing input where contemporary updates are needed for the material and it creates an organic process for developing additional leadership. Look for ways to invite stronger leaders in your midst into your process of sermon planning. Ask God to use it for the benefit of His church and the advancement of His gospel through His people.
