I spoke yesterday at Creekside. My first Sunday morning was on Mother’s Day. Which is way more pressure than father’s day. I had a really great time. I really enjoy preaching when I can feel a connection with the congregation. And yesterday I really felt that. It was cool. I was really humbled by the impact that some folks shared with me afterwards. It’s just such a great reminder that God is in control. The things that I think are really great, are shadowed by the little things that people catch. That’s so God. He surprises me all the time like that.
I’ll post the video as soon as we get it all encoded. Watching myself preach is not that fun an experience. I’m really glad I went to the gym today though. I gotta get back in that habit. Hard Core! You can get the audio here if you would like it.
I love father’s day because I had a great dad, and I am a dad to an amazing son. Being a dad has just been such a great joy that I don’t think I could really express. But it’s awesome. And our little girl that will be here soon. Man that’s gonna mess me up. I just know already that I’m going to have a little princess. And while I’m really excited, I’m also really nervous. I’m sure it’s all going to be awesome though.
I also wanted to post this video. Now I’m not endorsing anyone politically, I’m not agreeing with any one candidate. But Barak Obama spoke in a church on Father’s Day, and It really was a great speech. He showed a lot of courage to talk to Fathers, and specifically call to task African-American Fathers. He also may be the first presidential candidate to quote Chris Rock. It’s really a great speech. Not really a sermon because there was no scripture and only a quick reference to Jesus. But still a great message for father’s day and for Dads everywhere to remember how crucial we are.
