Semi-daily preaching by a Semi-daily Preacher on a semi-daily basis

Greg Lee as Brother Preacher

Greg Lee as Brother Preacher

I think it goes without saying that the wedding I recently participated in nearly took me out. 

I’m not as young as I used to be, and all those kids and the music, to say nothing of those little wedding mints, can really do a number on a guy like me.  I tire quicker than a turtle on treadmill,  and I am easily confused by pretty much anything that happened after 1989.

But that is simply what is called: Preaching.  So boo hoo.  Toughen up. If you can’t stand the sermon get out of the pulpit.

Over the years, Preachers have been thrown into lion’s dens, buried in sand up to their necks, tied to bungee cords and used like a tether ball, been made to head up pot luck dinners for baby showers, exposed to freezing cold baptismal lake water in Colorado, made to play Moses in Vacation Bible School, and worst of all, made to oversee a bunch of teens as they devour pizza’s…right in front of them. «Read the rest of this article»
