Following my sermon in this morning’s Facility Chapel, an opinionated resident and auditor called me to her side and offered the following advice.
“Every speaker should be aware of the three S’s. Stand up so that you can be seen. Speak up so that you can be heard and then shut up so that you will be appreciated.”
I smiled, ground my teeth, thanked her and then went and took an aspirin.
There is nothing like honest evaluation of one’s sincerest efforts.
