Good Sunday in Church today.
Andrew from Tear Fund came and shared how the $3000 we raised at Christmas will help two villages, about 200 families, will get water…thus enabling girls to go to school, dysentry and vomiting to decrease, and infant mortality drop by 50%…thats pretty awesome actually, that together, we could do that.
Jim Mc Kinnon (older guy at church) led out Community Choir, Soul Jam, in a rendition of ‘God’s Radar’ which brought the house down, it was funny, moving…great!
I spoke on Jesus’ passion for His Fathers House, and what it drove Him to….get mad. I enjoyed the story, and explaining some of it. Got a heap of feedback, which was great. A few visitors commented that they liked that I spoke about 25 minutes, to the point, good content etc. I am always amazed that some preachers speak for 45 plus minutes. Unless you are at a conference, that is…in my view…too long, and that is normally the feedback given. To bore people is a sin..I reckon. I also think, on a typical Sunday morning, the skill is in condensing the message, or maybe distilling it is a better word. Either way, its not about what I have to say, but God’s. I reckon if you are waffling…its about you!
