The Note-less Preacher
Well, my preaching nightmare finally came true this past Sunday morning.
I forgot my notes down in my study and didn't realize it until I was started with the Scripture reading just before the message.
I forged ahead, a bit tentatively at first, but it came together, I think.
Afterward I told my small Sunday School class and they said they hadn't noticed. I'm not sure if that's good or bad...
How about my fellow pastor-blogger friends. Have you preached without notes often/ever? The current pastor at the church where I grew up uses no notes pretty much every Sunday am... He says if he can't keep it straight in his head, it's probably too complex for the congregation to absorb.
I might try this again soon, this time intentionally...
