Sundays are my favorite. Put aside the sometimes mad rush to feed and dress the girls, take out the dog to pee and make it to church on time, and I love Sundays. I love the anticipation that builds before Sunday school, knowing that when I walk out it'll be with a new little nugget of knowledge. It's like those bite size Snickers bars, a perfect little treat. Okay, so sometimes when the knowledge is owning up to something, maybe it's not always so treat-like, but I eventually appreciate it.
It's sort of sad when Sunday nights roll around. The thrill of the day winds down and the week starts to start. James will leave to work the next morning and the girls and I will restart our own routine, and life goes on.
I suppose the problem (if you can call it that), is that the pastor, Ken Whitten at Idlewild Baptist, is amazing. The man can deliver a sermon. He really is just gifted at delivering a message. And I can fully appreciate using the term "gifted" because I have sat through other preacher's sermons and in the middle thought to myself, bless this man's heart but I am so bored. Sometimes a preacher can have a good sermon, but if there's poor delivery, man, people can lose focus and totally miss a message that isn't even bad!
All that to say, you should consider subscribing to the Idlewild podcast on iTunes. If you're like me and enjoy listening to various thought leaders and preachers throughout the week, Pastor Ken would be a good addition.
