So this weekend I was on deck for preaching with our Senior Minister out for a few days (miss you preacher, come back soon!). It usually makes me pretty nervous; but I’ve come to really enjoy preaching. My sermon was more topical than I would have liked; but I was following what I felt was God’s lead on it’s direction so…
That was confirmed for me when last week as Phil was preaching I realized my sermon was eerily connected to his! I joked about him peeking at my notes, but figured that since I’ve been planning this one for months (and he writes all of his months in advance), maybe God was up to something good here.
The worship leader that day (ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Caleb White!!) also picked out some songs that just really fit well with the message – and even though I did collaborate with him on the service; it was still really sweet how everything just matched up perfectly.
It never surprises me anymore when the service plans mysteriously just flow together – but it still amazes me!
