Prompt for February 27, 2015

Complete the short story / flash fiction, that has the following first paragraph:

He stepped up to the pulpit, his normally steady hands shaking as he set his notes down.  While his mouth was dry, he didn’t dare pick up the glass of water that sat waiting for him for fear that he would spill the contents.  He looked out at the crowd, standing room only today, and waited for them to quiet down on their own accord before he started.  When they had done so he scanned the church one more time and found the eyes of Miranda Hutchins.  Her eyes were filled with sorrow and pain, fear and sympathy, but most of all, filled with love.  He straightened up, wiped the sweat from his brow, cleared his throat, and began his last sermon.

Post a link to the story in the comments.
