Ah, the Dress. By now we all know about The Dress. One color combination to one group of people; a different combination to another. The phenomenon was all the rage and ‘so last week’.
This is a phenomenon well known to any preacher. Several weeks ago I met with a friend on a Tuesday morning, and he got serious with me.
“Randy, I want to tell you this as a friend. Sunday’s sermon was way too long. I even checked with my wife, and she agreed.”
I take such things to heart. But then I don’t know what to do with them when the next day I hear from another.
“Randy, when is that sermon going to be posted online? It was so helpful and I need to hear it again.”
I asked if it was too long and, as expected, the answer was, “Heaven’s no.”
There is nothing new under the sun. Just occasionally, the Internet notices it.
