  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: These are not really my property... I have a mind that gathers information all the time, which becomes the soil from which sermons spring under the rain of the Spirit. If you find ideas you’ve read elsewhere and I fail to give proper attribution, please forgive me! I am blessed to have any preacher use whatever portions of my messages that they find helpful.
  • Sermon or series that made a difference: "His Hand Clave to the Sword" 2 Samuel 23:10 Paul Lowenberg, more than 30 years ago! A lesson in perseverance
  • Family: Wife- Beverly who entered the Presence of the Lord, 12/29/2015 4 adult children, 4 great spouses and beloved grandchildren
  • What my parents think of my sermons: Probably think I’m too liberal!
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: She says she enjoys listening to me... and that she often finds out what I’m really feeling about life. Ouch!
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: Don't be afraid to preach 'beyond yourself' and into God's Word!
  • Books that have had an impact: Celebration of Discipline, Foster 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Covey Anything by Dallas Willard and/or Tim Keller
  • What I want on my tombstone: A man of integrity-- faithful to the end.

    Apathy, not laziness

    Sloth! I feel it when I am slouched on my couch, snack in hand, mindlessly watching TV. Can you identify? Is just being a slug every now and then a sin?
