Theodore Kern, the convention president and pastor of Crescent Valley Baptist Church in Battle Mountain, used an oboe reed as an illustration for the Christian life.

“God knows we have bends and twists like a lot of the oboe reeds. Like the reed, we are imperfect. God chooses to work through our strengths and our weaknesses,” Kern said.

Heh. I’ve never heard a sermon before where an oboe reed was used as an illustration. Shoot, I’m not sure I’ve ever met a minister who knew what an oboe reed was! So this made me smile. A little.
