I remember back when I worked in the Church of the Nazarene, and began my journey toward ordination. I was asked if I was seeking ordination as an “Elder” or as a “Deacon”. I asked what the difference was. “An Elder is someone who feels called to preach.” I definitely felt/feel called to preach, and enjoy the opportunities I get in my ministry. I get to preach on a regular basis to our youth, but once in a while I also get to preach in our general Sunday morning services. I figured it’d be fun to share a few with my reading audience…so you know I enjoy speaking as well as writing. 🙂 I believe God uses it also, in my own life as well…

Or if you’re in a hurry, here’s a boiled down sermon from Jan, 2011 with some funk to it.
And here’s a “Spoken Word” I wrote as a benediction for my recent June 17th message.
“Do not merely listen to the Word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says…” (James 1:22)
