It was Invocavit Sunday and no one had asked me to preach. Theophilus' pulpit is normally wide open, but he had decided to take over himself. (By the way, Theophilus' philosophy of visiting preachers is interesting. He insists that if the chance Circuit Rider (meaning us) is better than he is, his congregation will get a treat; if he is not — as so often happens — Theophilus feels that his congregation will be very glad to see him back in his pulpit on the following Sunday.)"
