Dear Heavenly Father, please keep the devil off my back

There is much to be gained from reading word for word, and much to be lost.

Saying a lot in a short period of time is way more difficult than it seems.

So challenging to meet the listening needs of a diverse audience, including the diversity of where people sit (for example, we sat in the last row).


When you hope a teenager is inspired and they tell you honestly they aren’t – it’s time for Grace and time for being non-judgemental (of the speaker).

“Maybe they asked him last night to fill in, or maybe only a few days ago. Maybe he doesn’t speak often.”

Resist the temptation to judge.

Resist at all costs.

Don’t. Do. It.

Critiquing a speaker for me is the same as a chef visiting a restaurant when they’re hungry. It’s literally impossible to not make a judgement with the first bite of every food item on her plate – she can’t help herself, it’s in her blood. It’s automatic. And human.

It’s instinctual to help us survive.

Should i spit this out because it’s awful?

Do i want to come back because it’s so amazing?
