  •  we had a substitute pastor (10+ / 0-)

    while ours was on vacation (the nerve!).  the young man was very serious and sincere but he was terrible!  i am sure it was a combination of youth, insecurity, and not knowing us but i did feel sorry for him.  our pastor is very organized, his sermons are well prepared, written like you were taught in school and usually have some little giggle in them somewhere, but the young man had none of that polish.  i hope he comes back next year and does better.  i am sure he was happy when 1030a rolled around.

    •  Thank goodness (6+ / 0-)

      the new deacon reworked his sermon for the 10:30 audience.  Even at that, with his talk about super heroes and things, his voice began to drone on.  I'll give him a while to get over his nervousness and then we're going to have to work on projection.  We'll have him around for at least a year and he's got to get better or people will be turned off.  Our last couple of pastors have given good sermons and we're not used to mediocre anymore.  :-)
