'Good times' - as my eldest daughter would say when something goes well. Last night certainly turned out to be pretty good.
For one thing, I think I felt the freest in my preaching here that I have ever felt. For another, people were generally encouraging in their response - not in the sense that they enjoyed it but that they thought it was a word for them and could form the basis for how we move forward as a church.
It means that quite a few people are looking forward to next Sunday when our new pattern of gathering gets underway - 4:45pm for the classic-style service, 7pm for the contemporary one.
I'm trusting that God has good times for us as we step into this new pattern. We'll see...
