preaching changes me

I’ve become convinced that when you preach a message it changes you more than the majority hearers, because you’re the one who has to sit with it, and wrestle with it for all those days leading up to delivery.

When you give a sermon, you open yourself up to misinterpretation and confusion and anger and ignorance and blogging and fear and jealousy and opinions and evaluation and critique and agendas and baggage and convictions and projections…                                                                                                                                               but at the exact same moment you are also opening yourself up to the possibility of truth and light and hope and repentance and desire and compassion and longing and revolution and confession and inspiration and comfort and solidarity and salvation and resurrection…                                                                                                   and when you do this, you don’t get to pick one or the other
