I was only a regular publisher, but I absoluetely hated giving talks. It used to crack me up that nobody knew or realized that I essentially gave the same talk everytime......into was usually an illustration followed by the bible reading...conclusion was a "how can we apply this to us as jah's people today" type thing. #4 talks were slightly different, but the jist was the same. Everytime, people would come up and tell me how great my talk was. My wife and I used to crack up, cause we both knew I threw it together in about 10 minutes over dinner that night.
I did love early morning service though....nothing like drinking coffee and driving around listening to Public Enemy.
Meeting for service everyday with the psychotic pioneer elders wives!!!!
