I was hoping I would be able to hide behind the pulpit. But it’s made of glass.
DH = Dear Husband
Last Sunday, DH and I delivered the message at our church. Our pastor, who knew about our journey out of debt, had asked us if we’d be willing to share it as part of his sermon series on the renewal of the mind. We accepted, and after presenting last week, we were amazed at the level of response we received. It was like a barrier had been broken. We hadn’t presented as people who had our financial act together. We hadn’t presented as people who had made it to the finish line. We had presented as people who were in the midst of digging ourselves out of a financial hole, and as such, we were people to whom many others could relate. Others who had evidently carried their financial burdens in silent shame. Perhaps especially at church. There was some amazement. “Nobody talks about their debts!” And relief. “I have so much I want to talk with you about. Can we have coffee some time?”
To American readers (and listeners), I wish you a very happy Thanksgiving!
Here is the podcast of our message. (I have to admit, I’m feeling somewhat vulnerable putting this out there! If you choose to listen and you have anything nice to say, please leave a comment.)
Comments are especially welcome this time : )
