Every now and again I will be asked what it is that I do during the course of the day. It was but a month ago that I decided to prepare my own “time sheet.” This was the result of one who asked me when I thought he should have known. Thus, this past Thursday (5/22) this is what I did. Perhaps this will be of interest for some, perhaps not for most. Every preacher is different and so would be their schedule of activities throughout the course of the day. There is some consistency to my days, but enough variety that flexibility is the norm.
