I preached Ruth 1:6-22 twice now, first in Tacoma and then at the Columbia BPC in Oregon yesterday. Each time the emotions boil over — not sure what to think about that. I can assure you that with this particular message, I just can’t seem to keep it in. In homiletics they’d always say that such a thing was fine, so long as it didn’t distract from the message. I don’t think I did from the feedback & conversations that followed, but listen for yourself & let me know what you think.
Second: More Contests
If you’re feeling blue about missing out on that epic 1-in-9 chance to win a prize, Mark from Here I Blog has a contest of his own. Presumably with worse odds given his large (and deserved) following… but you never know!
