I know you are all waiting with bated breath, so here goes….
First off I mostly want to make clear that while I was nervous about how tonight’s topic would be handled, I was mostly upset about the sign. I just felt it was more there for shock value, and wish that this series could have been done on a more quiet note instead of so in your face. I was very relieved when it was replaced this past week with our Harvest Party sign, even before the series was over.
With that said, I was very relieved after tonight’s sermon. I think I spent the whole night nodding my head. And I wanted to cry over what was taught, how it was exactly what I hoped would be said. The wall I placed between me and my church came crashing down. Love prevailed.
Thank you Jeremy, thank you Hope, and most of all, thank you Jesus!
Oh, P.S. I have to say that though I’ve been absent from church by busy-ness, and partly by stubborness, I have never been so spiritual and close to God. I’ve prayed more, I’ve been in the word more, and I’ve blogged more (which sounds silly, but it’s one of my ways to collect my thoughts and feelings, and get me even more in the word). Spiritually, I’ve had a very good month. So maybe my stubborness and busy-ness had a point, cuz I’m on fire!
