40 years full-time

Gasp! The site of a famous teacher I visited today touts his 40th year of ministry. Then I realized: This very month of October marks my 40th year of full-time service to the Lord, along with our 40th wedding anniversary back in August as well. Time flies when.

I started working with the Shiloh TN congregation, following Clyde Woods, who recommended me to them.

It’s a moment to pause and give thanks to God for his patience and mercy.

I started preaching regularly when I was 16, going out to Croft congregation every other week. I think that continued until I went to college. But we won’t count the suffering I inflicted upon those poor people.


What say you?
