It seemed as if every congregation scheduled a “gospel meeting” during the summer months, and scheduled it for the same week every year. In fact, some of the churches called the … Continue reading “Sermon Design and Delivery” — Review
February 4, immediately after the morning services, I left Prairie Grove and headed for west Tennessee. About 7 hours later, I pulled into the Fairfield Inn and Suites in Jackson, Tennessee. Jackson is about 25 miles north of Henderson, the home of Freed Hardeman University. I suppose that the Bible Lectureship at FHU is one … Continue reading My Week at the Freed Hardeman Lectures
