I do love it, God, when I have an idea for a sermon, and then I let it simmer, and then I start writing, and then I get an idea for the flow, and then I walk away from it, and then I see what needs to come next when I return to writing, and then it gets better with another edit, and then I figure out what I need to include graphically in the PowerPoint, and then I preach it and it feels good and I truly believe it’s your Good News. I know that happens when your Holy Spirit is working with and through me in the process.
It was one of those weeks for me, God. Thank you. Amen.
[For those of you who follow this Tumblr, you may have noticed that I didn’t post any prayer for the past four nights. I was taking some retreat time and unplugged. I highly recommend it.]
