  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: overlook the spelling errors... hear the law which tells you what you know - you are a sinner... and then - hear the good news - Christ came and died so that your sins will be forgiven. (Feel free to use my sermons, as long quotes are explained in context, and you do not twist my words
  • Sermon or series that made a difference: Easter series (Lutherans celebrate it for 7 weeks) God Dances with Joy Fall series - Backseat Conversations on the Road to heaven.
  • One of my favorite illustrations: For Redemption using a empty coke can - crushing it - tossing it sin does to us later picking it up - noting that some find value in such, and switching it with a chalice.... for that is what Christ does with us...
