Today, the youth minister will be preaching at your church.
Or the campus pastor.
Or an executive pastor who everyone loves but is rarely given the opportunity to rock the mic.
Someone who doesn’t speak often will be behind the pulpit today. (Or behind the small table and tiny chair that has absolutely no back support. Or in front of the large flat screen TV. Pulpits are so 2000 and late, which itself is an ancient reference to a Fergie lyric. I’m nothing if not culturally relevant.)
Why will this happen today?
Because as I’ve written about before, it’s the Sunday after a major holiday.
Attendance will be light. The Senior Pastor might be on vacation. Anything goes.
I love this Sunday, in part because some times I get to be the after a major holiday speaker.
You’ve been warned.
When this happens at your church and your mind is blown at my ability to see into the future, please don’t tweet that I’m a prophet. It goes to my head and I got a new hat for Christmas that I want to fit.
