Yesterday was a great day.

I told.

Our Pastor was away.

I filled in.

I shared a skit I wrote.

I shared the message for the day, and it included parts of my life.

Yes even THAT part.

The love and affirmation I received was wonderful. I figure even if a few people are bent out of shape, the positives I got more than make up for it!

One fellow who is also on our administrative board, came up and talked to me and asked me what we can do. He said that so many people have this "can't happen in my church attitude" but that numbers I shared show that's wrong and then he genuinely wanted to know how we can get others to be able to come forward and how we can help them!!!

Ah!!! Good feelings!!!

Our church video tapes the service and posts it online.

I'm looking into editing the thing down to just my part and posting it somewhere, so that anyone interested in seeing it can do so!

Scott, I'm new to MS. However I'm not new to the topic of being a survior of sexaul abuse. You did a great job as you allow God to use you to minister to the body of Christ. When we lay all of who we are on the line is when God shows up. You are in my prayers Scott.
