Today is my first time back teaching after my sabbatical, and i was up all night thinking about it. I've been preaching and teaching in prettyt much every conceivable environment for 15 years, so you'd think i wouldn't get nervous anymore, but i still do.
Especially after an extended absence.
Still, it's times like these that i'm reminded that the preacher is less important than the Word. That's a pretty good reminder, i suppose, regardless of your vocation.
