Jesus is back! That most certainly calls for a magnificent, very excellent, give-it-your-all sermon. Yes, indeed.
So . . . first things first. Take a breath. Or two.
Breathe in through your nose into your lower belly for 4 seconds.
Hold for a second or two.
Breathe out through your mouth for 4 seconds.
[From Calm Breathing]
There, now. All relaxed and ready to go?
OK, then. It’s all going to be fine.
We are here together. And we have that amazing good news to tell. Jesus is back!
Easter Preachers, welcome! This is your party. So, share what you’ve got, ask for what you need, and tell some good news here today. What is going well in your life, work, family, hobby, or community? We might even laugh a little.
Let’s fill up the snack table with Easter basket goodies or egg-inspired things or whatever you’ve got to offer. Help yourselves to some Fair-Trade organic French Roast coffee. You know it’s good because it’s brewed in New Orleans, baby!
A very special welcome — and tons of gratitude — to all of our not-preaching-this-week RevGals and Pals. Thank you for stopping by with an encouraging word.
If this is your first Preacher Party — whether you are new to RevGals or if you have been lurking here on the blog for awhile — please introduce yourself.
Let’s party like Jesus just showed up! Cuz, guess what?
