What my parents think of my sermons
They shake their heads at the level of transparency and shock factor that I bring
What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons
She thinks Iím crazy in my delivery style but acknowledges that there are no "sleepers" during my sermons.
If I could Preach one more time, I would say...
God loves you and wants to have a relationship with you now and into eternity...open your heart to him. Also, heís left us a plan to follow to have peace and contentment in life...read the bible and live it. One more thing, you got to love people, it makes life so much more fulfilled.
What I want on my tombstone
He gave his best while loving God and people.
Comment to those looking at my sermons
Iím definitely an outline preacher with strong biblical support for every thought.
