Tonight I did Evensong. I had several bits of paper to dole out, readings, hymn numbers, baptism applications etc. I put them all together and on getting to church handed them out. As I had my quiet moments in the vestry I realised I'd lost the sermon. It was not with any of my papers so I rushed around checking all the papers I'd given out earlier . No sign of it. Going back into the vestry I jotted down the points hastily. After we'd got as far as the Magnificat a piece of paper fluttered to the ground. It was found! When I finally got up to preach I was able to tell the congregation two things. First I'd found it. Second the subject was on lost things. Sheep, cold coins etc. I couldn't make it up. Losing a sermon on the subject of lost articles was rich even for me! - Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone
