I was about halfway through my sermon on the Fifth Commandment this morning and the power went out. This has happened about three times in the past, but each time the power quickly came back on. This morning it did not come back on. So after waiting for a moment for the laughter to subside and for the power to possibly return, I began to preach in the dark.
The stained-glass windows and the security lights in the back let in just enough light for me to read a couple of long biblical passages in the sermon. Has this happened to anyone else?
