Back when I did confirmation, my pastor asked me if I was interested in doing Scripture-readings during service. She liked how I read things out loud, hence the question. I said sure, and heard nothing more about it until this year.
After some back and forth and noting when I’d be available, I ended with two Sundays. This one, and Palm-Sunday (April 1st).
Yes, I was nervous. I had read the pieces through beforehand, in the translation used at my church, so that was fine. There’s just the whole ‘Standing in front of a large group of people and hoping you don’t lose your voice halfway through’-feeling.
Things went well. After service people told me I did well, had a good voice and was speaking clearly. *glee* It’s nice to know you did well.
Scripture read: 1 Corinthians 13 (Paul’s ode to love), and Luke 18: 31-43 (Jesus’ being cryptic to his disciples, and the healing of a blind man on the way to Jericho).
