The Sunday review…

There are days when everything goes as planned, when nothing is out of the ordinary. We often become bored with days like this, but I would have definitely taken an “ordinary day” yesterday.

While I was speaking during the 9am service I could hear our building creaking as the wind blew. A little distracting, but no big deal.

I had only gotten a few words out during the 10:30am service when the power went out. Pitch black. In a room with no windows. But, I charged on. So in the darkness I told everyone that my topic for the day was “Where do God and sexuality meet?” I expected it to be awkward. I did not expect all the distractions. I really believed, at one point, that the wind would rip the roof off our worship center. The lights came back on [thanks to our wonderful tech team. They were incredibly quick on the draw!], and blinked a few times during the remainder of the service. The projection screen behind me was swaying for some reason. People looked nervous, and I’m sure I did too!

I honestly think that part of what was happening yesterday was spiritual. I think that the enemy wanted to distract us, to keep us from focusing. All things considered, I think we had a good day yesterday, and I am looking forward to next Sunday!

I want to challenge those of you who are part of the MCC family to bring someone with you next Sunday.

How was your weekend?

Looking forward to hearing from you,

josh

  1. Boy am I sorry I missed yesterday. I wasn’t feeling good and decide it would be best to stay home and rest so I could get to feeling better…but that would have been a sight to see and hear! It sounds like God kept everyone focused no matter what the situation was!
