One Priest's Thoughts About God, the Episcopal Church, Life, and Lawn Care
I do sympathise, it's a bit like writing essays - or speeches ( I do public speaking.)
That rings true. What I really hate is realizing Saturday night that the sermon is crap and I need to start over.
You're right, Sue. Public speaking is public speaking. Maybe a priest has it easier than someone like you who does it for a living because we're doing it in front of our folks who know us (and maybe even expect us to be boring sometimes.) I once realized it on a Sunday morning, Amelia, and totally had to rewrite my sermon (argh!)
I don't do public speaking for a living - unless you count the fact that I am a teacher.I do public speaking as a hobby and enter competitions - I've won a few but I'm not that good, honestly!I think preaching must be hard because it is always on the same topic (I know there are lots of different themes and areas within Christianity - but you know what I mean!)The worst thing about being a priest must be that it ruins your weekend :)
