Our Latest Sermon Notes
My immediate thought was, I have run out of things to say! Don't rejoice too quickly! There is a sermon for today. I looked at the reading for the first Sunday of Lent. By the way, I hope you knew we are now in the season of Lent. We are in the run up to Easter. I looked at the reading for today and wondered what am I going to say that I have not already said, about the temptations of Jesus. I was 'tempted' to look out an old sermon and see if any one noticed. Can I say, I have not done that, but if something I say does sounds familiar, it is probably because I have said it before.
