As part of our current series on living the Christian life, last Sunday we had a documentary instead of a sermon. It was on indentured labour (slavery) in India.
What should have been clipped to an interview of about 5 minutes, took over the entire service.
The collective prayer for the speaker was wonderful; but the 90 minute docco was not.
Even some announcements were long-winded.
Some church people when they speak take a lend of the audience. But we have a duty to consider the audience and give them a good experience free of 'ums', 'ahs', and repetitious fillers.
