i'm nervous. i am preparing to preach (again! twice in a week's time) tomorrow in my home church. my friends laughingly call it "national associate pastor's day" but many a jest is spoken in truth. i cannot decide if i should share a very personal piece with my congregation. how much is "connecting" with the congregation and how much becomes a form of exhibitionism? i tend to the very intellectual sermons. much more comfortable, but people can't relate. sigh.
