Comment to those looking at my sermons: Use them as resource material for ideas and illustrations as I use others sermons allowing the Holy Spirit to stimulate and inspire as you seek by His grace to communicate the Truths of the Word of God.

What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: My best and most honest critic

Best advice given to me about preaching: "To convert my hearers was not within my power; but to command their attention, to awaken their interest, to touch their feelings and instruct their minds, was and I determined to do it" (Thomas Guthrie pastor and preacher in Scotland 1803-73)

Books that have had an impact: Purpose Driven Life, Finishing Strong, books by John Maxwell, Rick Warren, Bill Hybels

What I want on my tombstone: "He never just became a curator in the museum of the faithful"
