in exactly two hours, minus one minute (more or less....) a sermon that isn't really finished yet. I just got something about snakes -- "The Holy Man and the Snake" SOMEWHERE and rlp just quoted Emily D.'s poem I had forgotten about.
Healing services are not exactly easy --and I chose to use next week's gospel from John 3: 13-16. Not an easy one to begin with.
To top it all off, I'm not well myself. Stress and medical conditions have caused my Bell's palsy to flare up -- no drooping but horrible pain and a distressing loss of vision in my right eye.
So, I'm preaching a healing service and I'm preaching to myself, again. Prayers, please?
