Earlier this week, I was writing the prayers of the people when I noticed that the Gospel lesson is Mark 12:38-44. What is the big deal about that particular Gospel lesson, you say? Well, this is the lesson on which my first EVER sermon was based. Realizing that, I preached my own sermon for the first time fully 3 years ago. I preached my first sermon on November 2, 2003. Wow. Time flies when you're having fun. Later this month, I will be preaching my 18th sermon ever. I sure hope I'm improving.... :) Later.
