This coming weekend I’m preaching at the church that is interested in
possibly hiring me.  I’m excited!  I’m really looking forward to it.  I
had what I thought was my sermon all put together, and then I consulted
with a pastor I greatly respect.  He suggested I go another direction. 
Wow.  I really appreciate that kind of honest assessment.  Those calls
can only come from people you trust and respect, and indeed both are in
play here.  So I spent much of tonight finding new direction.  We’ll
see where it takes me!  I’m kicking the tires of Matthew 5:13.
