Re: The greatest challenge of a pastor in the south
Double D, God indeed knows the labor involved.
In my lifetime, I have been a steam fitter, a lumberjack, an industrial electrician, a repo-guy, and a dozen other kinds of work. But NONE of these left me as completely drained and weakened as I feel at the conclusion of a REALLY GOOD sermon.

“The pulpit calls those anointed to it as the sea calls its sailors; and like the sea, it batters and bruises and does not rest…. To preach, to really preach, is to die naked a little at a time and to know each time you do it that you must do it again.”
Brother Thielemann knew whereof he spoke.
A woman who demands further gun control legislation is like a chicken who roots for Colonel Sanders.
