Something funny that happened while preaching: I was using a radio to show that we need to "tune in" to God. I was talking about how the Holy Spirit gives us the "power" to do that, and that when the connection is broken, we cannot listen anymore. Someone had put batteries in the radio, and so when I unplugged it, it kept playing!
What I want on my tombstone: Sausage and mushrooms
