Recently our pastor was diagnosed with a very rare and often deadly form of cancer. I learned about it on the news (ours is a rather large church) while on the couch recovering from surgery. The news was heartbreaking.
See, we recently started attending this church and have really thrived from Pastor David's preaching. When things go wrong in a Christian's life, everyone seems to stop and stare. We didn't attend church the following Sunday for obvious reasons, but we did eventually listen to his sermon on the internet. It was everything you hope to hear from someone.
Give it a listen, its about an hour long. Maybe you can put it on while you're working on something else. It will change your life. It really will.
