55+

I was asked to speak today to my second most intimidating/awkward settings ever. I talked for a bit at our 55+ ministry’s luncheon. It is amazing to me how much an audience affects how I speak. Even more ironic is that I’m far more intimidated to speak to the elderly than I am with a group of junior highers.

What’s even better was what I had to follow. Before me, a lady was giving an entire lecture on the significance of a hug. I never knew that there was so much research out there on the science of hugs but I’ll admit I was rather intrigued with her information. I now know how to great someone with a “hand hug”…so watch out!
