I just wanted to talk about baloney…

I just wanted to talk about baloney…

If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, or pay attention to Upcoming Events listed here on this blog, you might have noticed that I preached this past weekend. I’m a teaching pastor at Christ Fellowship Church in West Palm Beach, Florida, which means that I get to preach a few times a year.
Although after this Saturday night’s experience, I might think twice before the next time. 🙂

I’ve heard from enough other pastors about this that I’m pretty sure we all face it at one time or another: You prepare a sermon on a specific topic, only to receive a lesson on that very topic before or during the sermon. An example would be the pastor preaching on humility who has to deal with a humbling situation a few days before Sunday.

As for me, let’s just say that this weekend I was preaching about having a good attitude. And I ended up facing a challenge to MY attitude AS I PREACHED that… well…

You need to see for yourself:

Clearly, God knew that I needed an object lesson for my sermon. I just wish I could’ve finished my baloney sandwich story…
