I'm just going to link to where I put it online back then instead of reproducing the reworked version here. It was great that we were already planning on singing a version of "Amazing Grace," so the references I made to that song were still relevant this weekend. The main thing I had to change was where I made reference to "the terror events of last fall."
After church, a couple of people approached me independently with the same compliment -- they really liked how my sermons are laid out in a linear fashion that are easy to follow. I told them that I'm a computer guy -- that's the way I think. The compliments both came from schoolteachers, who probably appreciate an organized presentation even more than I do.
I'm preaching again in a few weeks, on June 8. I'll have a brand new sermon for then.
