Some days it's fun being a pastor
I know I'm the pastor and all that but boy I had some fun this morning.
I was able to get back into the classroom doing confirmation/discipleship with a fresh crop of Jr. Highs. So fun to lead a discussion and discover interesting things together rather than having a nice lecture from some old fart who knows it all. I can be an old fart sometimes, I know, but this morning wasn't it.
And worship was good for me. I was running at about 60 or 70% this morning after a rough night but the worship was sweet and good and renewing for me. The sermon was a simple thing that I felt really a bit unready for. God was just there giving a good living example of being the body of Christ together. There were things to pray for and worship for and well it was a good day. Helpful, refreshing, healing even.
No, it's not always that way for me, or anyone else I suppose, so I'll take days like this and hold them close.
