It's been many years since I had the privilege of sitting under my father's teaching in a "formal" way. He pastored Wilkins Church for many years and I got kind of spoiled by good preaching and teaching.
I suppose you could say that it's been my yardstick ever since. We followed the Standard Lesson Commentary, just like our Sunday school classes and the sermons at our hometown church were using. That helped us feel connected even when we were apart.
We had sweet communion together as well. It was a very special time for us as a family and I'm glad we had the opportunity to do this.
But no matter how much we enjoyed our times of home church, we really missed everyone at our hometown church. Since it would appear that the worst of flu season has run its course, we are excited now to return to worship with our regular church body - we can hardly wait until Sunday!
