Preaching this weekend...

This coming weekend I'm preaching at the church that is interested in possibly hiring me. I'm excited! I'm really looking forward to it. I had what I thought was my sermon all put together, and then I consulted with a pastor I greatly respect. He suggested I go another direction. Wow. I really appreciate that kind of honest assessment. Those calls can only come from people you trust and respect, and indeed both are in play here. So I spent much of tonight finding new direction. We'll see where it takes me! I'm kicking the tires of Matthew 5:13.

I am one of the youth members of First Congregational Church! Also part of Christian Ed starting the Sunday you give your sermon! Don't worry I am not a judge Daniel tells us in the meaning of his name God is our judge; + I did my confermation sermon on judgment & I am not about to be a hypocrite!

Kyle,
Thanks for commenting! I look forward to meeting you either Saturday night at the Open House or Sunday at church! I think it will be a great weekend, though hopefully it warms up a bit!
