What always amazed me was the fact he was so easily accessible. I
QUESTION: If you were a senior pastor would you have anything to say about the songs and chorus selection of the worship team? ANSWER: You bet! I’d have lots to say. In fact I believe the senior pastor should be the final judge of which songs we sing and which we don’t. Not just to
What is normal? “The norm” these days seems to have taken some strange turns. To quote an old car commercial, “This is not your father’s Oldsmobile.” Everything seems to be changing. What used to be wrong is now right. Things that once made us blush are “normal” conversation. Matters that were never discussed from pulpits,
