Well I did it. 22 minutes. I have proof. It's on tape, and could even be watched by tuning in to some channel at some time (sorry, we dont' have cable).
Andrea and I really enjoyed the Advent liturgy and the congregational participation. The people were very warm and gracious.
And I'm beginning to think that a 25 minute sermon may create a far better setting for an encounter with God's Spirit.
(Some of my friends from OVCC will begin to calculate the things they could have accomplished --with all their free time-- had this realization dawned on me 4 years ago).
