Sleep is my favorite!

Yeah, Sleep was my favorite too, when I was with Bill at Sam Jones… 🙂
Well, if you are the one giving the sermon, I’d find it highly unlikely I’d be doing any of these things. I would, however, be listening intently. As for people being fully present in any given situation these days, it is becoming increasingly irritating to me that they are not as long as they have a phone nearby. I say that in the most Christian way of course.
I choose to relate to the sermon. The evil one chooses to do all of those other things.
Pretty sure I never slept during one of your sermons! Of course, I was a lot younger then 😉
