Divine Detours

It’s a strange feeling to preach to an empty room, but that’s the experience many pastors are having these days.

In recent days, I have recorded a few sermons in virtually empty rooms.  I also wrote a blog post giving some coaching tips to those who find themselves speaking to a microphone instead of a “live” congregation. (You’ll find the blog post under “News and Events” on Heritage’s homepage)

Below is a message I recorded (from my living room) for our Tuesday chapel.  This sermon, from Exodus 13-14, deals with the topic of “Divine Detours”–those times when God allows our lives to be rerouted.

    Hi Rick!

    Happened to catch your very timely message Divine Detours.

    What a blessing! Perfect for me as I’m in Exodus in my daily Bible reading this month & read the chapters shared in this Chapel message last week. So I got a double attitude check by the Spirit regarding my complaining & my small faith during these

    challenging days of the COVID-19 virus as well as spending too much time listening to the latest news & broadcasting it to others in my home adding to their worry. So God said:. Please stop! Still yourself. Come to Me & find rest.

    I shared your message on my Facebook page so other friends could also have opportunity to find comfort & have practical insights how to best cope as believers in these trying days when our lives have been put on a detour

    So far, those who loved you from Met days said. “He’s still got it!”

    Praising God for the clear & excellent teaching of his Word &

    Much love & my prayers for you & Linda in these days.

    Pastor Rick
    great to see you sharing the living Word during these times.
    God’s peace has kept us from being afraid although the news can do that.
    The Good News overcomes the Bad News praise the Lord for that!
    God bless
