About Simon
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: "Keep it short: you have a lifetime of preaching ahead of you, so don’t feel you have to say it all in one sermon."
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: "Jesus loves you."
  • What I want on my tombstone: Adoramus te, O Christe, et benedicimus tibi
