One of my favorite illustrations: God changes us from broken crushed coke cans into chalices

Best advice given to me about preaching: "The chief purpose of all worship is to give people what they need to know about Jesus Christ"
Books that have had an impact: Augsburg Confession, Proper Distinction of Law and Gospel, Between Two Worlds, Just about anything from Will Willimon or Pope Benedict XVI
Hobbies: Music, computers
If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: know Jesus loves you
What I want on my tombstone: He gave people what they need to know about Jesus
