“I was a wrestler in 8th grade, I was about the same height, but about 60 pounds lighter at the 110… alright 65 pounds lighter (Laughter)… at the 110 pound weight class and when I was in 7th grade I’d lost a handful of matches… and that’s tough business… I mean wrestling is like an organized fight… it’s like getting beat up on the playground, only in the gym with a ref in front of all your friends… and everytime I lost, I cried… the emotion was so strong.”
Pastor Dan’s opening paragraphs below are SO good that if they don’t entice you to read more… well, I hope you will anyway 🙂

VIDEOCLIP SERMON INTRO – “The Me | Church… Where it’s all about me”
Sermon AUDIO (listen as you read TRANSCRIPTION below)
“Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to go a “Me-Church”… to go to a church that catered to all your needs? Let me just ask you, “If Kirkmont started catering to all of your needs, what are some of the things that we would start offering… or how would we do things differently? … besides a new pastor (Laughter), that’s off the table, but anything else, what would it be?
I couldn’t come up with a list for you but I decided to come up with a list for myself. Here are the top three things that I thought of if the church just started catering to my needs, here are 3 things that we would start doing around here:
FIRST (this is in increasing order of expense): The first thing would be that my OFFICE would be painted in all Michigan colors with a BIG BLOCK “M” (LAUGHTER)… yeah, that’s right… and a TV outside of it that just played HIGHLIGHTS from all of Michigan’s games (more laugher).
The SECOND thing… I mean that’s doable, the second thing is a little more expensive: I personally would like a PASTOR’S BATHROOM somewhere because I just don’t feel comfortable going to the bathroom with the rest of the parishioners (Laughter)… especially after going into the restroom today in my socks (Laughter)… we’ll just leave that at that.
And then (in increasing order) FINALLY I would like… I would like to start a Chick-fil-A Restaurant right here in the building, that was OPEN ON SUNDAYS… right? .. if it was ME-CHURCH… what about for you?
