Emphasizing the Positive

Something I do that gives me great delight throughout the week is regularly saying good things about my church or my pastor. Like the other day some people were talking about how nobody seemed to care for people anymore.

“Oh, at our church people aren’t that way,” I said. “If folks there even get a hint that you’re sick, well, somebody calls on the phone or stops by with a full meal. They are great that way.” And then, I just kind of smiled.

“What’s that you’re talking about that worries you? Our minister preached on that last Sunday. Oh, I wish you could have heard him. His sermons are great!”

Short comments like that dropped into a conversation make people feel they are really missing something—which they are—by not being in church. Together, let’s make sure people really know what they’re missing.


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.
