As a consequence, all the clergy in the Waco District received an email a month or so ago about our attendance being required at a workshop on preaching.
I was insulted at first. Not only do I think I am a fairly effective preacher, Bishop Lowry hasn’t heard me preach – he can’t be thinking of me when he says our preaching needs improvement!
I quickly decided that, however effective a preacher I think myself to be, I want to be an even more effective preacher. So, I swallowed my pride and soon became eager to attend the workshop.
The first workshop, ably led by Dr. Mike Young, was encouraging. I am looking forward to improving my preaching.
