For those who say, you preach better "when you just wing it", I offer this...

If I have the stomach for it, I'll listen to this sermon again.   But to me it felt like a sermon that was headed in 50 directions at once.   Click HERE to listen.

The nature of Narratives---comedy or tragedy. Which is ours?

Funny Story, I left my notes for the sermon in my office so the sermon ended up a little more "freestyle" than I expected it to be.  Bringing it all together in the end is called "landing plane."  This one has a bumpy landing, but I like to think the Good News was loud and clear.

The First Sunday of and 5th Day of Chistmas

Today we celebrated Lessons & Carols--a service with much singing, a lot of Bible readings, and no preaching. I suspect that a Lessons & Carols Service was invented by a pastor who didn't want to preach 3 times in 8 days. At any rate, no sermon today, but we'll be back on the Jan 5th for the Second Sunday of Christmas/ the 12th and final day of the season.

As always, Thanks for listening.
