Yesterday was a very interesting day for me, but for now let me focus on the morning. Several weeks ago, I was asked by our pastor to fill in for him July 9th while he and his family were going to be out of town for his sister-in-law's wedding. I told him I could do it (on top of my worship leader duties as well), and even though I had done portions of services before with college groups, it was definately a different experience going it alone.
I spent the time talking about the uselessness of worry and the benefits of trust. In general, I think it went pretty well, but I was clearly nervous and not flowing things together smoothly. I am anxious to get a copy of the tape to listen to and see how it actually went. In my mind, it's just a blur right now anyway.
I'm going to try to get the sermon into an MP3 eventually, and if I can get that done, then I'd gladly share it. I know the experience makes me appreciate my pastors all that much more, for it's no easy task to put a good sermon together and deliver it well.
