A preacher was visiting with his congregation after the Sunday morning service when a determined-looking woman approached him. Obviously displeased, she said, “Pastor, as a member of the pulpit committee, I was hoping that your sermons would excite our congregation.” The new pastor replied, “You’re right, I did say that I thought I could excite this congregation, but I never said that I could raise them from the dead.”
If there’s nothing in your pastor’s preaching that excites or stirs you, maybe he’s not the problem.
