define('DISABLE_WP_CRON', true); Pastor Ralph Diehl ยป Blog Archive » THE ALARM CLOCK


   Posted by: pastordiehl   in Uncategorized

An interesting thing happened years ago when we were worshiping in our smaller building. Adam was young at the time and noticed that I had a small alarm clock sitting on the pulpit we were using. He asked why that clock was there. I told him it was there so I could see what time it was and end on time.

Later, I was preaching away and wrapping my message up. I was at a quite serious point and just bringing people to the altar call point when the alarm went off on that clock. My concentration was broken as I quickly tried to process what was happening.

I pushed the snooze button and shot young Adam an “evil eye”, but it was too late, the church was in an uproar and the sermon was over.

The moral of the story is if you’re going to give people information, give them all the information. If you don’t fill in the blanks, they’ll fill them in themselves.

I wish I could have been there and seen the “evil eye.’ Also had a get even thought. Pastor Ralph should place an alarm clock set to go off when he wants worship over and see what happens, LOL
