Last Sunday we were informed that, in observance of Pastor Appreciation that the service the next Sunday will be lay led. Every aspect of the service will be handled by our lay people and then the Sunday sermon will be delivered by our assistant pastor. Following the service we’re going to be taken to a nice restaurant for a meal.
As you can guess that freed up my sermon preparation day (I made hospital visits instead). It’s nice being appreciated. It’s quite humbling as well.
