I loved the message tonight, Ed! I especially loved the impression you did of the sloth. Priceless!
My boyfriend didn’t like it quite as much as me, though. Don’t get me wrong. He enjoyed it. He just said something about being reminded of his faults wasn’t his idea of a good night. 🙂
Looks like maybe you made your point with at least one of the single guys out there.
Ed…wow! Have you been spying on me? I’m a 27-year-old Christian male who has strung along a beautiful woman for 17 months. Every single description you gave of the single male fit me perfectly. I’m definitely on the path headed toward “weirdosville.” I was once great looking, in shape, had a large social group, and worked diligently each day to reach my goals. As a result, I have a Masters degree and a great job. Okay, so what? That means nothing now. I spend every single second of my spare time on the couch watching ESPN. I have one good friend that lives 250 miles away. I pretty much lost touch with the rest of my friends because I never “feel like” doing anything! I just want to do nothing. That changes when I’m with my girlfriend. When I visit her on the weekends, we go out with (her) friends, go out with each other, and live active lives. I become a normal person. Well, because of your sermon, I might learn to be a normal person again. I proposed to my g/f 18 hours after hearing your sermon. I already planned to propose to her around this time but the whole “I’m not a 100% sure” thought was racing through my head. I was waiting for a burning bush! Fortunately, your sermon was my burning bush. I can’t think of a more powerful and direct sign from God than your pastor preaching a sermon titled “just get married.” Thankfully she said yes! I can’t believe she stuck around for 17 months. Anyway, take care and god bless!
A sloth no more,
I’ve always dreamed of throwin a Texas rigged lizard …right in that same spot. FYI – I have a brother in D.C. that watches you on TV every week. He’s an Army Chaplain, just got appointed to a position in the Pentagon (braggin a little?) – but he loves your messages. I can’t wait till he see’s last weekends message. Brother, you were on fire! Preciate ya!
