Eldest daughter was a bit put out that she went to Church on Good Friday and I didn't even notice she was there!
Later in the day she told me
"You preached too long!"
"I only preached for 10 minutes"
"It was too long!"
You can't win them all, and your family are a preacher's worst critics!
"Any way, " she countered when she realised she was maybe just being argumentative, "you always say the same thing!"
"So what did I say?" I countered.
"Well you always say how death is so important that we shouldn't run away from it!"
I said no more, content that at least one person had heard what I had intended to say!
