I received a text last night from Clint, the CoC preaching coordinator, that said, “Great job! Everyone was touched by your sermon! You will have to preach again!”
I don’t want to put myself down, but I have serious doubts about his sincerity. They could be saying:
“Great job!” (For your first time.)
“Everyone was touched!” (Because you gushed all over us about how great we are.)
“Preach again!” (Because I’m an overwhelmed married first year PhD student who needs as much help as I can get.)
I might be reading into it too much. Yeah, probably.
