I keep old sermons somewhere on disk. Some of those disks no longer have readers - remember floppies? Some are on old floppies. Some are on those little disks in cases. Some are in various document files on backup drives. But never mind, I never go back and look at what I wrote. Every time I have to preach, is it from scratch.
But of course I go on the net to see what is out there. Well, it finally caught up with me. In 2001 I wrote a piece for The Christian Century on Luke 18:1-8, the Gospel for tomorrow. Wandering around this afternoon I found it. Reads pretty well after all these years.
For the moment I do not lose heart. Old stuff shows up when I need it.
Take a look: HERE, and Do Not Lose Heart.
