My wife, Karen, collects angels. And she’s done that for years now. A book fell off the shelf at the house last week and knocked over a nice porcelain angel, breaking off both its wings. I glued them back in place, so that you wouldn’t really know anything happened unless you looked very closely. It wasn’t a big deal.
What is a big deal is putting broken people back together. Now that’s a specialty of Christ’s. He’s very good at it. Quite often in the process, He makes use of the resources He has in His church.
I applaud Jesus for His unusual skill in mending broken lives. And, I rejoice to be part of a church that’s helping Him in this work. Many times you wouldn’t know anything was wrong, unless you looked very closely.
I am grateful that I continue to hear how positively readers are responding to my latest book entitled The Sermon Sucking Black Hole—Why You Can’t Remember on Monday What Your Minister Preached on Sunday. This book is available at Amazon.com by clicking here.
In this book, I offer some solid tips to the people sitting in the congregation to help them remember what their pastor has said from the pulpit.
