Heading out of town today to teach FLAME Courses in Indiana, and will not be posting again until after my return on Aug. 16.
The courses I'm teaching this time are Homiletics (preaching) and a seminar for small town and rural pastors.
I was sharing some details about the homiletics class with my daughter, Hannah this morning over breakfast at McDonald's. "I'm going to be teaching a class on how to prepare and preach sermons", I told her.
A tourist in the next booth was listening in on our conversation.
"I hope you teach them how to keep people awake!" he said, "Most of the sermons I've experienced have been dry and boring."
"I'll do my best to knock 'em alive", I replied.
