Oh give me a home where the buffalo roam,
And the deer and the antelope play,
Where never is heard a discouraging word,
And the skies are not cloudy all day.
I watch several sermons online each week. On Facebook, someone posted an endorsement of a sermon because of a specific statement the pastor made. I was curious, so I watched the 140 minute service. I never heard the statement. There was a space of a few minutes where the sound was turned down - or some technical issue - or maybe I dozed off. What I did see was a frustrated man. He expressed his frustration with the ushers, the camera operator, and the media person. He came across as controlling and manipulative. I pray that he takes time to rest, that his church supports him, and that they thrive in their mission.
I have several others that were encouraging and eye-opening for me this week. If you have time, you may want to check these out.
