pulpit view

It's 7am Sunday morning. The sermon's ready, I'll say that much. Not that it's any good.

I'm off to preach it three times.

Pastors must know when their sermons are boring or not about much, I certainly do. It's hard to get up there with such a work and put it out there for everybody to hear. It's as if I am saying, "I spent twenty hours on this thing. It doesn't show at all, but listen anyway."

Maybe they'll hear passively this morning and something will kick in later in the week, like medication. Or in the case of the current piece, maybe they'll just forget it. That might be better.
