Accented Sermon Prep

Tuesday, November 16, 2010
This Sunday I'll be preaching and so I'm surrounded by a good pile of books and a whole lot of thoughts.

But unlike most weeks, I'm a bit apprehensive about this one.

Here's the deal: every time I think through something before writing it down, the voice in my head speaking the thought has a Northern Irish accent.

What does this mean?

And so naturally I'm a bit concerned that come Sunday I'll run on the platform and deliver this sermon in a foreign accent. While I have nothing against speaking in an accent I can't help but think that the congregation will be very lost.
