This coming Sunday I am doing a 'guest preach' at a church in Fife, and it's Pentecost. Three years ago I did a guest preach on Pentecost in Watford, and felt that the sermon I used then, with a bit of editting and updating, would do just fine. Then I discovered I no longer seem to have my very old, tatty and well-travelled visual aid (I created it at least 16 years ago, because I was a student at the time). An hour spent searching hgh and low was quite enough!!
Fortunately for me, a friend had taken a photo of me with the scroll, and was able to retrieve and send it to me today. So now I can make a new scroll, with a few tweaks, for use on Sunday and hopefully, beyond.
A word to the wise - rejigging a sermon for a new context takes almost as long as writing a new one, so never opt for it as an easy solution.
