Come on over and join me on the front porch for our Monday visit!
When I was growing up, my southern Father had a difficult time finding a decent church for our family in Massachusetts. He was the son of a rural Alabama revival preacher. He and his brother were also street preachers. When he married my mother and moved to New England, the religious culture was very different.
When Pastor Charles Stanley starting broadcasting his sermons each Sunday night, it became our regular routine to sit together in the living room and watch the program. I loved Stanley's sermons. As a teenager, however, my only problem with watching was that it came on late at night and I had to get up early the next day for school.
Years ago, when visiting my older brother (in another state), I noticed he was watching Stanley on television and I was amazed! It had become a routine to watch this great saint teach and preach God's word.
Over this past weekend, I listened to a sermon on CD, while I slowly cleaned my kitchen. I wanted to hear every single word! Sometimes, I will find some cleaning project to do, just so I can listen to a sermon while I work!
Last night, at 8 pm, I watched Pastor Stanley on television. John (13) sat with me. He played quietly while he listened. I worked on a hand-sewing project and enjoyed every moment.
You can listen to sermons for Free online if you go to In Touch Ministries. I'd love to know who your favorite Preacher is. Won't you come on over to my front porch for some tea and brownies, while we talk about Spiritual matters?
