I'm often asked (as I was a few times this week) how I prepare for a Sunday. Since I'm a lead pastor and all, most people know that I will sharing a message the majority of the weekends out of a year and I think they're curious as to the process that goes into making that happen. I take that as a compliment... or maybe a hint I should be doing better... not sure.
The answer I give is all of the things you'd probably expect... lots of prayer, advance planning, Bible study, counterintuitive debate with myself (to be sure what I'm going to say is valid), and so on. I have my messages benchmarked out for several months and then in the weeks leading up to a particular Sunday hone in on the core concepts God's laid on my heart.
That takes a lot of brain work from a person.
Still with me?
Okay... the reason I share that is so that you may better understand why today in the midst of final prep for tomorrow I couldn't help but think of a stubborn memory I have from the 80's. I'm sorry to say that YouTube has captured it in all its pitiful glory, and so I know pass this "slice of nothing" from my brain to yours so that I can move back to heavy theological ponderings about the eschatology of theological eschatologies.
My sincerest apologies.
By the way - bonus points if you remember the Saturday morning cartoon show that featured these fellas.
