This week I have been privileged enough to preach my first revival. I have participated in many revivals but my usual role is as worship leader. I was excited about the challenge of preaching 4 sermons in 4 days. For those of you who know me then you know that while I am talking my brain is also thinking about many different things. Sometimes I am able to maintain my focus but sometimes we get to travel further down the rabbit hole :) Usually I can connect the dots and bring us back onto the path we were on. Last night tho I went a little bit too far down the rabbit hole and just had to stop and admit that I couldn't connect the dots. We all laughed and moved on. Here are a few of my thoughts from revival so far:
1. I enjoy preaching.
2. When time is not an issue I preach about an hour :-0.
3. I like preaching from my hardcover Bible.
4. When you preach everyday you can refer back to last night and it is still fresh on their minds.
5. I love that the orthodoxy connects true believers from different congregations.
There will be more thoughts to come! Thanks for the prayers!
