11th Hour Preacher Party: An Old Story Edition
In a week where the texts are challenging, it feels like a good idea to share a little piece of the gospel according to RevGalBlogPals.
In the beginning, it was a Saturday. One preacher emailed another, and they realized they were both online, and they kept sending little words of encouragement via the Internets. And it was good. God said so. And it crossed their minds that other preachers in the webring might need the same sort of cheering up as Saturday afternoon turned to evening, and thus the 11th Hour Preacher Party was born.
Also in the comments at the very first Preacher Party, my email partner reassured us all with the following--
Now for the two things that one of my homiletics professors told me was absolutely essential to preaching:
1) Let it go... the Holy Spirit has got your back.
2) If you got a dog, walk it proud.
This is our old story, gals and pals. We've been throwing this party for over six years now. It's by far the most-visited feature on the blog every week. It's been a place to make friends and get help and let off steam. Thanks to all of you for your participation and contributions over the years.
We've shared many cyber-treats and I promise you, they are absolutely calorie-free. I'll supply the Holy Donuts and keep the coffee and Diet Coke coming today. Pull up a chair and get out your laptops. Let's help each other find a good word this week!
