The last day of 2017. My assignment was easy enough, just preach a sermon at church.
I warmed up the car 15 minutes before leaving for church. As we were about to go I saw this flat tire. No problem we just took the wife’s car without much warm up. By the way the high was not expected to get above zero degrees here.
Before arriving at church we were contacted by a few key people that they would not make it because of the weather. Understandable, no problem. At church the sound board is out for repairs still. To top things off we had no internet access. The problem is we already advertised Facebook Live for anyone not able to make it because of the cold. Well between a parishioners cell phone and using another to record just the audio the sermon was recorded electronically.
Admittedly this has been a frustrating day for me. Oh and the BIG IDEA for the sermon was “Embrace or endure the season you are in.” Maybe I should listen to my own preaching…
