Speaking not preaching!
So for the past two weeks, well really since before we went down to Guatemala i have been preparing for service at Woodlawn Baptist Church. Pulpit supply is something i never thought i would be doing, much less being part of a rotation. All i have to say is...................i love it! At this point you are wondering what the title means and to be honest its what i do, i dont know if i have ever preached a sermon what i prefer to do is share with the congregation what i have gleaned from Scripture and make a connection with real life. Preaching to me is something that you are telling the congregation, i am very much a relational person so i want to communicate with the congregation and share with them. I know i have already stated this but preaching has such a stigma attached to it...i guess it does, i prefer to tell people i am speaking in churches instead of preaching in churches. I dont know let me know what you think!
