'I have been asking myself this question: Could I now reach who I once was? Asking this question exposes one to the bend in the road. Discomfort surfaces. Resignation tempts.' ....Anything good we ever preach has been made possible by a prior testimony of God's mercy. We've dreamt of making a difference. But what if differences are made by remembering where we'd be without God and then ministering to others out of that knowledge? What if preaching requires something prior to homiletics?'
