On Thursday, I got a case of diarrhea. I’ll spare you the mushy details. As a relatively healthy person, I had not countered this problem before. My life as a preacher complicated the matter. I waited for medicine to work. I went to the doctor who assured me I was not contagious. I recovered slightly on Saturday, enough to think that I was getting over it. Do I cancel church? Do I put my faith in man-made chemicals to actually work? Do I tell the congregations so that they know why I am struggling to perform?
Oh…and I have 3 churches.
Alas, I made it through. One church heard a good sermon. The others celebrated Mother’s Day despite me.
Have any others contended with this matter? What did you do?
