He Came, He Spoke, He Left


"He came, he spoke, he left." That's the three line novel Alex Tang has for me.

Alex posted an interesting entry on composing three lines novel. So I commented that for a talkative person like me, "it would be very difficult to do a 3 lines novel...but perhaps I should try it once for my sermon." And in reply, this is what I got from Alex: "He came, he spoke, he left."

Hmmm....I have to think hard since I normally complain about sermons that are over 45 minutes in length. For me, a good length sermon should preferably not exceed 35 minutes (well, I know some may dispute this. Some prefer a longer sermon, some shorter).

Perhaps a three lines sermon would be a nice change....I know for sure that my colleague in charge of AV will be very pleased with this.

He came
He spoke
He left....

And so the pastor of the church said, "And we will never invite him back to our pulpit again."

Pearlie,

Better get it repaired soon! The faster the better, especially if you ever think of taking any other modules with me!
