Back in September I got my License to Exhort in my classis of the Christian Reformed Church. Because I am enrolled as a student at Calvin Theological Seminary I have also been granted the license for the entire denomination.
Since September, I have preached in a couple of church services. In the first case, it was an evening service in which I only did the message. This past Sunday, I did the entire morning service including a children’s story. Both experiences were good ones. Comments following each were positive. I have used the same sermon three times now and it feels better each time. Overall the experience has been positive.
If you are interested in spending half an hour on it, here is the audio for the message from this past Sunday. Your constructive (or not) comments are always welcome.
