Much of my time here is taken up with sermon prep. There are endless distractions. As can be seen.
Last week I took myself away to a restaurant by a lake and had a really productive (and tasty) few hours. As can be seen.
I find that the key to getting on with a good sermon is applying the grace of God to self-discipline. If I try and just get on with it in my own strength then I lose every time. But God is strong in my own weakness.
