Good Morning from Beverly Hills, FL
Although we thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Ohio and our month-long stay in Canada, it’s good to be home after being away for 40 days. We either preached or taught a class 17 times in the past six weeks. We’re thankful for the opportunity to minister in the Word and for the fellowship of these wonderful brethren. So, to paraphrase Mark Twain, the reports of my retirement from preaching are greatly exaggerated.
Tomorrow, as well as next Sunday, I will be teaching a class and preaching for the West Citrus Church in Crystal River where we worship when we’re home. Continue reading
FYI: We’re taking a two-day holiday blogging break. We will be back on Tuesday. Happy 4th of July everyone.
Good Morning from Port Colborne, Ontario, Canada
After a two-year absence due to COVID-19 shutdowns, we were finally able to cross the border to see our Canadian friends and brethren again.
We will be here for the month of July working with the Wellandport Church where Mike Stephens serves as both a preacher and Shepherd, along with the two other Shepherds, Rob Caldwell and Barry Burns. I will be preaching every Sunday, plus holding a weekend meeting, July 7-10. In addition, I will be teaching the adult VBS class, July 24-27. We are so excited to return and be with this wonderful church family. Continue reading
Good morning from Beverly Hills,
Hope all of you are off to a great start with your Memorial Day Weekend.
Our blog post today is a recap of the past week’s posts. We send this out as a way to help our readers catch in case they missed a post. It’s also a good way for you to share ThePreachersWord either by email or on social media.
The most popular post of the week was “Is Your Church a Red Door Church? If you missed it, It was followed by “What America Needs.” If you missed either one, I encourage you to read them. And also to share with others. Based on reader reaction, both touched a nerve that was beneficial. Continue reading

We’re home after a wonderful week enjoying Springtime in the Smoky Mountains. And, of course, being with our friends Olie and Mary Williamson, as well as the church family at Cosby.

Good morning from Citrus Country, FL
In case you missed a post this week, here’s a recap with the quick links to help you get caught up. We’ve also included a bonus post from 8 years ago when we lived in the Kansas City area. When I read it, I thought my what a contrast to the 80 degrees weather we’ve expecting today.
Today we’re driving over to the Space Coast where I will be preaching for the North Courtenay Ave Church in Merritt Island tomorrow. We’re looking to seeing some old friends, meeting many of these brethren for the first time, and hopefully meeting some of our readers. Continue reading

Good morning from Beverly Hills, Florida,
It’s been a crazy week with both computer issues and car repairs. But somehow we’ve managed to post every day.
Hopefully, both issues are now resolved since we’re leaving tomorrow afternoon for The Great Smoky Mountains. Yes, “the mountains are calling.”
Tomorrow morning, I’m preaching at the West Citrus Church in Crystal River on the topic “Forgive Yourself.” Then the next two Sundays, I will be preaching in Cosby, Tennessee. Continue reading
Norma Jean and I are flying to Indianapolis today, to be with Woodland Hills Church in Marion, Indiana, for a meeting that begins tomorrow and continues through Wednesday.
