    I’m preaching tomorrow at First Congregational Church in Guilford. Since it is my church, I’m going to wait to post the sermon until tomorrow, since I want to make sure no one gets a sneak peak. Instead, here’s a poem that grew out of my preparation.

    sermon prep

    what can I say
    what should I say
    can I say that
    I don’t know
    what to say
    say that again
    don’t say that
    what did you say
    that’s been said
    far too often
    nothing to say
    say something
    what can I say
