Moriah 1: Intro


One of the first sermons I ever prepared for was in High School.  Right after my Senior year, our youth group took it upon themselves to start our own church services in the basement.  We set up a song service and divided sermon responsibilities amongst ourselves.  I took one Sunday late in July as my day to preach.  I botched the message that Sunday.  I pocketed the sermon I should have preached, and made up another on the spot.  This article comes out of my reflections on that message I never preached.  I have gained a lot of perspective over the years.  I have always been awed by the simplicity and wonder of that message I never preached.  I’d like to share it with you.
