Sharing the Pulpit

(This is a painting that my friend Jenny Smith painted of the pulpit at Princeton that I preached from on one occasion)

Something I’ve come to appreciate in my short time as a solo pastor are the opportunities when folks are able to fill the pulpit for me on any given Sunday. I enjoy preaching every Sunday. Whatever the season might be. Advent, Lent, and Easter and everything and anything in between. I’ve had a couple of our church members preach this past year and a couple of good friends of mine. Over the next two month I’m having some folks fill the pulpit for me. It will give me a chance to be fed and to listen. It will also give me a chance to connect with those hanging in the pews. Something that sometimes is hard to do when you’re helping lead worship.

  1. I, for one, am so excited and honored to preach to your congregation again. Thanks again for asking. I hope that you’ll be able to hear the Holy Spirit through me.

    FYI, I am planning on bringing a few people along that Sunday.

  2. I’d offer my services too, but I don’t think your congregation would like to hear how poorly my Giants are playing for twenty minutes!!!
