What would you do Wednesday!
Popular Southern Baptist author Beth Moore recently preached at Passion City Church on Sunday morning. The video of Beth Moore preaching at Passion City Church is still online. In light of her recent sermon – let’s consider how you might react if Beth Moore were to unexpectedly preach at your church on Sunday morning.
Your church has advertised for the past two months that Beth Moore is visiting soon to lead a Sunday School class. She is visiting to teach, promote a book, answer questions, etc. Several of your friends hear that Moore is coming to your church and make plans to attend worship with you on that particular morning.
A week before Moore’s visit your pastor announces that something special is planned after her Sunday School class. However, that something is a secret until next Sunday morning.
It’s Sunday morning and Moore has just finished teaching Sunday School. Corporate worship begins. Your pastor steps up to the pulpit to begin the sermon – or so you think. Instead, he announces he will honor Beth Moore’s visit and give the congregation a special treat by having her preach the morning message.
How would you react?
- Get up an leave.
- Get up, grab your visiting friends, and leave.
- Stay out of respect, but talk to your pastor later.
- Stand up and loudly read 1 Timothy 2:12 several times.
