First Sermon Back

Well…I have one under my belt now. It was so good to be back at HOCC. We began a month-long series on Communion. It was great to see everyone, great to be preaching again. Today was like taking off your new baseball mitt and putting your old one back on…wonderful.

This weeks blog posts will be some reflections on the sabbatical experience.
