“If you think that the gathering of biblical facts and standing up with a Bible in our hand will automatically equip you to communicate well, you are deeply mistaken. You must work at being interesting. Boredom is a gross violation. Being dull is a grave offense. Irrelevance is a disgrace to the Gospel. Too often these three crimes go unpunished and we preachers are the criminals.”

I couldn't agree more with this quote! You were anything but boring when preaching. I've been missing your excitement.

I've been thinking about you guys often and praying that the pregnancy is going well....Kara

Kara! So good to hear from you! Tell your girls and Brad hello!
Thanks for your prayers. The pregnancy is going well, with only a couple of weeks left until October 3! I'm getting excited. I've been kind of nervous about how we're going to handle another one. Christ will strengthen us for this blessing I'm sure.
