As I slowly woke up, I began thinking about all the tasks I had for the day. Nothing out of the ordinary for a pastor on a Sunday: preparations for morning worship, reviewing my sermon in my head, remembering that day's guest teacher and the meetings I had scheduled for that afternoon. Again, nothing out of the ordinary for a pastor on a Sunday morning.
