  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: pray for me, as I often apologize to my congregation and audiences that I fail miserably to give them what and how God gives the message to me
  • Sermon or series that made a difference: Too Many Firefighters, not enough Arsonists
  • One of my favorite illustrations: Elijah on Mt Carmel
  • Family: Married. Wife is in ministry also,a bishop with recorded christian artist with spiritual songs purchased globally. We have five grown children,and four grandchildren.
  • What my parents think of my sermons: Both are deceased, but my mother often enjoyed them and insisted that I file them, which I never did. You were right Mom.
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: it depends on how often she is mentioned
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: To thine own self, be true
  • Books that have had an impact: The Wounded Healer, Troubling Biblical Waters
  • Hobbies: Reading, writing, watching old movies, and research.
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: True ministry, if you really understand it, is the job that nobody really wanted initially. But he retirement and benefit package are out of this world.
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: Fan blew all my notes away
  • What I want on my tombstone: He did the best he could
