I had the opportunity to deliver the message at The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection at the Ash Wednesday
service on February 21, 2007.

This was the first time for me preaching in the main sanctuary. It was a good experience. I felt pretty comfortable, all things considered. Near the end of the sermon, I had a thought go through my mind, which I had never experienced before while preaching – “You are making the final point, look at the camera to connect with the most people.” In the sanctuary, there are two video screens which provide a live feed of the service. This is the feed which is put up on the website, and it is also the view which perhaps a majority of people in the sanctuary watch during the service.
I would enjoy hearing your feedback if you watched or read the message. Thanks!
