First Church Year #24: Hot
This weekend was the hottest one on record for our area. Record temperatures for any day were met for East Tennessee. 105 degrees is not my idea of fun.
It would be easy to Jesus Juke the situation this week by saying something like, “It may have been hot this weekend, but not as hot as it will be for eternity for those who don’t know Christ.” However, I will refrain from doing anything like that.
It would be easy to stay home during extreme weather. Certainly none of us wanted to go out in the heat. However, a good number of us may our way to church today. I half expected tons of patriotic songs celebrating America. Instead we had one song promoting America and many more magnifying Christ.
Besides the heat, our pastor search team is heating up. They went out to parts unknown (I alway loved hearing about pro wrestlers from there as a kid) to listen to a prospective pastor.
Despite the heat, it was a good Sunday.
How was your Sunday?
