a pastor's week

A pastor's week seems to go like this.  Sunday, Monday, Sunday, Wednesday, Thursday, Sunday, Saturday and then Sunday again.  It seems like Sunday comes three times a week.

Why is this?  I think it is because so much of what a pastor does, revolves around the 25 minutes that he or she talks to the people during the sermon.  I have to tell you, the pressure to come up with something inspirational is very heavy.  Sometimes, you don't feel inspired.  Sometimes, you want to listen to someone else.  And, yet, here it is again, another Sunday.

As a pastor, you have to prepare your very best and then just pray.  Pray that God will use these words.  Pray that you have "got it right."  Pray that the people will be touched in someway.  And it's all good.  God is good.

It's a beautiful day in God's world, be sure to see the good.

It is not always the words spoken, but the words heard as Spirit uses those words to speak to the listener.

It is a burden to guide others. However, you are able and I am appreciative.

I think there is always something we can take away and apply from your sermons, Jeff! Honestly, it wouldn't hurt me to hear you preach the same sermon again ... kind of like watching the same movie again ... there is most always something we missed from the first time! You are the best so just keep doing what you're doing :) We love you and our attendance proves that!
