While I was in Minneapolis at Adam Glass’s strength workshop, I met a couple of men that I’ve been fans of for a long time. John Bruney and Drew Kuespert from Swager Strength Equipment. John holds a couple of odd world records, like pulling a mile of heavy rope over his shoulder and pulling semis.
I own one of their thick bars, which is my favorite piece of equipment in the entire world.
They demoed a bunch of very cool equipment and were basically just a lot of fun to be around.
But to the point today: John is a pastor. Even from the equipment demo, I could tell he was a very charismatic speaker and knew that his preaching would be just as big and energetic as he was.
Well, yesterday John sent me a link to a sermon which was delivered this week to a congregation in Indiana. The subject? Well, I’m not sure how the sermon ended, because they only sent me an excerpt, but it began with a story about World’s Strongest Librarian.
To my knowledge, this is the first time my odd little blog has been the centerpiece of a worship service. I was moved, delighted, and a little bashful, but I’m still laughing about it.
You can listen to it here: I only take up the first 90 seconds or so.
John, if you’re reading this, I can’t thank you enough. You’re a good man and your people are better off with you in their lives.
