All eyes will turn to Lyde, standing at the pulpit, one hand on his dog-eared Bible.He'll take a deep breath and launch into it -- a sermon he spent the whole week working and praying on.A sermon he hopes will be nothing less than life-changing for his listeners.
And it's not even Holy Week.
Holy Week
Indeed, as Holy Week begins today -- as Christians embark on the most important week in the church calendar, leading up to Easter Sunday next week -- Lyde echoes a sentiment many church leaders share.
"Every week is Holy Week for us," says Lyde, just before Sunday service March 13.
She'll pray for her husband, John, who has Parkinson's disease.She'll pray for Lyde so that the spirit will guide him.She'll pray for her church, the oldest black Baptist church in the city, founded in 1894 -- not so much that it will grow in numbers, she says, but grow in holiness.
Behind the sanctuary, Lyde has slipped on his gold and black robe.His sermon about the blood of Christ is tucked in his pocket.He's still unsure whether he got it right -- whether he did the word of God justice.
It's any given Sunday.It's show time.And he's filled with fear -- a reverent fear, not a debilitating fear.
He has no way of knowing that two and half hours later, Washington will head home and call several church members to discuss how powerful his sermon was.For now, he's stuck with his butterflies, praying they'll take flight -- in formation, arrow-shaped -- and pierce the most hardened of hearts.
As the crowd awaits their entrance, he and several deacons and the choir gather in his office, hand in hand in a circle.
They say a little prayer, eyes closed and heads bowed, asking God to fill them with his presence and power.
They all give an "Amen."
Lyde opens his eyes.
