A Preacher Wanders

 

Waiting for the sermon to begin

What might I have to say?

Sunday morning coming down

The people gather to pray

 

Twenty years in the pulpit

And I still get nervous as hell

Why do they come to listen?

For some, not all is well

 

I dread the Sunday morning

When my words are all gone

And I open my mouth to preach

And my mind doesn’t turn on

 

Will they sit in silence

When my words run out?

What if I lost my thoughts

And the deacons began to shout?

 

But today the words kept coming

And the people smiled and prayed

A candle spilled wax on the cloth

Just another rogue Sunday

Can't imagine being on tap every Sunday to encourage my fellow man, especially given the relentless drone of the daily news. Hat's off! Patrick

So creative ~
Well I bet you are very comforting, and down to earth, and not all full of pomp like some of them are. I'd love to see you preach!
I get nervous before performing too, after years and years, it's just part of the getting up I suppose.
Ever,
Christine

Dayvid, I've spent 50 years in the pulpit and feel you message. Wish we lived closer and could set and talk about the"call" which we can't escape even though we want to at times.
