Some Shameless Self-Promotion

Well, at least I can couch it as a "prayer request." This Sunday over at Fusion Church, the young Padawan (yours truly) will be preaching instead of the Master (Tony McCollum). I can't tell you what a mix of emotions this is for me. It's an honor and a privilege to be preaching for someone who is as gifted of a communicator as Tony. It's also a bit like trying to "cook dinner" over at Julia Childs' house. It's scary, exciting, and nerve wracking all at the same time.

I do want to ask you all to be praying for me as I venture into this weekend. It's funny how these things go. A couple weeks out, you feel great. You've got some ideas. You're confident that God is giving you a word for the people. And then as D-day approaches, you feel less and less confident that you should be even speaking English in front of any one person, let alone a room full of people! Let alone communicating timeless truths from the Word of God. No pressure. Sheesh. I'm not nervous at all. Heh heh. A-hem. Please pray for me.
