My dance-card this week

(No offense meant to Baptist readers)

First, there's always a bit of post-sermon reacclimatization.

Then, at work this week I have an assignment that makes it impossible for me to do the usual between-call browsing, writing and posting.

Finally, this Friday and Saturday, I'm to attend the PCRT. I will probably be live-blogging Friday, at least.

So I do have a Hither and Thither brewing, but it won't be as massive as last week's.

Just to tell you.

As you were.

Heathen

Sorry, raised GARB, couldn't resist.

DJP's rules for Hither and Thither promotion:

1. If it's a massive edition, announce it beforehand.

2. If it's not-so massive edition, announce it beforehand.

How am I doing so far?

LeeC said...

All humour aside, I'm praying for the conference, and wish I could be there. Meh, couldn't make the Shepherds conference and i livve just down the street. :/

In other news, I think the word verification is trying to say unkind things about my weight. "sizest"

Snarkily.

Dan,

Did you preach again this last Sunday?

DJP said...

Yessir, I had that joy.

Fred Butler said...

Don't let those amillers make fun of you.

If they mock me, I'll just spiritualize it into a compliment.

rebecca said...

Snarkily.

Oooh...right back at me.

Hopefully I haven't shamed you into stopping your me me me hither and thither announcements. I look forward to opening my Google Reader on Friday mornings to see what you've got. I always find at least link or two to send to my son who might be more right politically (and by right, I mean conservative) than his mother and a whole lot less ladylike in what he does with his opinions.

Brilliant, just brilliant.

Mike Riccardi said...

Dan,

I did too! The church I preached at last time asked me to do another guest sermon as the pastor was on vacation. So not only do you and I have the same birthday, we're both two wanna-be preachers who get to preach on the same days, months apart. Uncanny.

Anyway, is there a link for your sermon?

DJP said...

Alas, no. A number of kind souls have asked, but it was taped, so transfer to digital would be difficult.

Dancing AND cards? Dan, I'm shocked, just shocked...

Sorry that there's no digital copy of your sermon. I've enjoyed those that I've listened to. Has anyone ever told you that you sound kind of like John Malkovich?

Oh my gosh, are you serious?

Stefan said...

"Dancing AND cards?"

Yeah, Dan, you've lost the Baptists, and the Mennonites too! You've alienated most of the world's credobaptists in one fell swoop.

Julie said...

Not to mention the Dutch Reformed, up in my neck of the woods.

Shinar Squirrel said...

Oh my gosh, are you serious?

Oh, yes! The first sermon of yours that I downloaded, I was in a hurry, and didn't rename it or note it in anyway. Weeks later, I found this mp3 file in my download folder... "Who is this? Sounds like John Malkovich!" My wife and daughter agreed. The sermon was good, but I didn't know who it was.

Later, downloaded another of your sermons... "Ah, that's who I was listening to!"

The Squirrel

DJP said...

Oh, good heavens. No, nobody's ever said that. But two people have totally independently said I look like him, with I totally don't see.

Julie said...

Well, especially not at 14' tall and 1400 pounds.

Sheesh.

Stefan said...

"Not to mention the Dutch Reformed, up in my neck of the woods."

So not only has Dan alienated all credobaptists, but also all Dutch people as well?

Wow, wow, wow, have you no shame, Dan!? Where will it stop!?

Rachael Starke said...

John Malkovich! That's who it is! Squirrels right!!

This is a good thing Dan. Don't think of it as you sounding like a brilliant character actor who most plays sociopaths and reprobates.

Think of it as you sounding like what John Malkovich would sound like if John Malkvich was a great preacher, writer and regenerate.

:)

Rachael Starke said...

And re: the tape to digital thing - my husband transferred his entire sermon tape collection (half an office wall) to digital by.... with .... well, something technomagical, and it doesn't take long at all. If you wanted to mail the tape our way we'd be happy to oblige. We'd charge you exactly what you charge for your blog. :)

Wait a minute, this was a Baptist church wasn't it? Was it reel-to-reel tape? I know how some Baptists get about tecknollijee. :)

Shinar Squirrel said...

Rachael -this was a Baptist church wasn't it?

Sadly, no... Dan normally preaches at a Presbyterranean church... but, wait, they post his mp3's... Where were you preaching, Dan?

The Squirrel

DJP said...

At a Baptist church.

Julie said...

Squirrel,

"Presbyterranean"?

I'm not touching the spelling on that one :D

DJP said...

He got that from me, so... you'd better not.

Shinar Squirrel said...

At a Baptist church.

Didn't tell 'em you dance or play cards, I'm bettin'!

He got that from me, so...

Yup, stole it fair & square, I did!

Rita Martinez said...

I'm deeply offended....we don't dance AND we're not technological?? well we don't dance..:P errr well some don't..but we are technological! not that it matters really but it sure is nice to be able to listen to sermons again in the comfort of my home and complete my notes :D

Truth Unites... and Divides said...

Dat's pretty funny about John Malkovich having a sound-alike in DJP. Then you look at the tiny photo and see the similarities in the shiny domes....

RT said...

Well Dan, you're finally on the right track dancing and playing cards. Throw in a little liquor and you can join the Episcopalians - "where two or three are gathered you will always find a fifth . . ."

CR said...

Well, Dan, one of the things, you could blog on Friday is an update to the Obama and third party voters (who haven't repented for their vote)President Obama's reversal of President Bush's executive order of no federally funded for new destruction of embryos for embryonic stem cell research.

I have been praying that the Lord would frustate evil plans such as this but He seems willing right now to give our nation over to murdering the innocent.

LeeC said...

For the record I neither see, nor hear any resemblance between john Malkovich and Dan.

DJP said...

Thank you! Thank you!

Me neither!

Aaron said...

All this talk of dancing, cards, and demmon likkor...

Lee - For the record I neither see, nor hear any resemblance between john Malkovich and Dan.

Rachael and I have you outnumbered, Lee! When you had in my wife and daughter, it's 4 to 1! (with 3 left over, of course.)
