This morning I woke up a little late and was getting ready for church when I realized it was the 5th Sunday. Now, I guess to most folks that wouldn't make any difference if they were going to church. But to me that means we are not having preaching at my church today.
I'm not sure if this is the correct term today, but my preacher is what used to be called a circuit preacher. That means he preaches at 3 different churches every Sunday. He has a total of 4 churches. He goes to the two biggest churches every Sunday and the other 2 every other Sunday. But, on the fifth Sunday, he gets to rest and only goes to one church, which alternates. He's a very busy man! His first service is at 9 a.m. then 10 and finally 11 is his last.
Today wasn't our turn, so there were was no preaching at our church. Since I had forgotten he was going somewhere else, I didn't have time to make it to the services at the other church in the next town. So, instead I read the Bible and a devotion and we had our own discussion.
What about y'all? Do you have a circuit preacher, or have you even heard of them?
