While preaching last Sunday I found myself in a moment of exuberance and great love for my church. Arriving at the moment with great passion, I spouted out the statement, “The Lord willing, I intend to pastor here until I die.”
I was intending to show my affection and commitment to Skelly Drive.
Later that day a church member told me I shouldn’t say that anymore because it wasn’t safe.
“Not safe?” I inquired.
Turns out she was afraid the statement might motivate someone to hire a hit man. ;)
