Comment to those looking at my sermons: Some of my sermons are designed to be multi-sensory.
For example, "Getting Out of The Box" preached on October 28, 2001 started with me sitting in a large appliance box.
Sermon or series that made a difference: The very first sermon I preached in 1979 as a senior in college, "What Does It Mean To Do the Will of God?"
Family: Married with two kids
What my parents think of my sermons: My late father seemed to like them
My mom still does!
What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: Likes them and has helpful feedback and suggestions
Best advice given to me about preaching: Preach about Christ and preach about 20 minutes
Books that have had an impact: Bible
7 Habits of Highly Effective People - Covey
Hunger for Healing - Miller
Sacred Marriage - Thomas
If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Follow God - no matter what, no matter how
Something funny that happened while preaching: As I stood to preach on a hot July Sunday morning in a building without AC, one of the elderly members passed out due to the heat.
What I want on my tombstone: He followed God to the best of his ability
