the sermon

Preaching went very well considering the one thing that threw me off. A certain yellow Lab/golden retriever cross decided to have a little fun. It was my fault for thinking that she would be a good girl and sleep through my sermon. I know better now! She decided to quietly get up and wander. I learned later that she went to visit an elderly lady in a wheel chair. Incidentally, her puppyhood included daily visits to a 92-year-old lady in a wheelchair. I guess Loretta has fond puppyhood memories!

Loretta's fun made for a great illustration. It also gave me a nice chance to practice improvising--and losing my place, and forgetting to go back to an important point. I'm not terribly disappointed considering this was my first real sermon outside homiletics class. The people at the church were very gracious with their feedback, and that makes me happy.

Dad told me on the way that he had been prepared to fill in for me in case I was ill. He didn't know what my topic was yet. When I told him, he did a double take. He had chosen the same passage!

god thing
I haven't heard your sermon yet, but I will be downloading it and listening to it while I travel tomorrow. I just have to say that when things like what happened with your dad and you having the same passage happen then you can know it was from God. I think its cool.

thanks
I'll get a transcription up this week... I deviated from the original manuscript--I often do this in my public speaking. This way you can get the impact of Loretta's fun, too.
