I preached at church this morning and all I can say is I’m glad that’s behind me. I just erased a big long paragraph telling you about it because Holy Spirit brought to my mind the scripture that love covers a multitude of transgressions. Believe me, I could tell you some stories, but I’d probably regret it as soon as I hit “post”, so thank you Holy Spirit. The sermon was well received by most, and a couple friends came as a show of support, which meant an awful lot. Other members were notably absent. Jesus was there though, which is what really matters.
I feel as if I have just been through a war. I remember our first pastor telling us that when people came against us we shouldn’t defend ourselves. That’s probably wisdom because that would no doubt make things worse.
I am thankful to be leaving for Alaska in three days. The timing couldn’t be better. Well maybe a little–tomorrow would have been better. :)
