Sometimes the Church hierarchy seems to be singing from a different songsheet from everyone else – even Church goers! You could think it’s because they’re out of touch – but sometimes they have a point which hasn’t been understood. So “I promise not to preach 2” is meant to be part of the conversation between People, Church and God – and tries to understand both sides.
