In The Pulpit
I am starting to get nervous. I have to give the sermon in a couple of weeks at our new UU church. Last night, I stayed up late (for me) to try to get a rough draft done. I am afraid that it is a little too rambly with not enough substance. I very much want to make sure that those who come to hear it, walk away pondering and growing from what I say. I just don't want them to feel like they have wasted their time. It is a lot of pressure. I am glad I only have to write one, I can't imagine how hard it must be to write meaningful sermons week after week! I also need to get the readings together and something to say during the children's time. And the music! So much to plan. Please send some positive energy my way - I could use it!
