Our preacher participates in an annual lectureship and received his topics this week. He asked Rachel about his topic, then she pointed him my way because she new I had an opinion.
Sam sent me the message below, and I wanted to share some thoughts because maybe it will help plant seeds of ideas for others.
Got my assignments for Polishing the Pulpit in August. One of my lessons is called Seven Minutes of Wisdom (because that's about all I got). The audience is college age and singles in the church. The lesson is about dealing with friends who are married with children and all the talk about is their kids or their marriage. Thus making for boring, unnecessary conversation with single friends. The lesson is about how singles should deal with this situation. I know you have faced this some, so I thought I'd get some ideas from you to begin with. What do you think I should cover in 7 minutes?
Here are some of my ideas, for whatever they are worth. They are how I've been approaching things or have been involved with in the past.
