I’ve been going through some old reference materials and came across this old quote from writer and pastor Jamie Buckingham:
“What the kingdom needs is more preachers like a pastor I heard in Fort Worth. Two years ago I sat listening to him preach at a pastor’s conference. I was just thinking, He doesn’t know what he’s talking about, when he stopped in mid-sentence. He paused, scratched his head, and then with wonderful honesty confessed “I don’t know what I’m talking about.” With that he sat down. Now THAT was a sermon worth hearing.”
Sometimes, being honest, and sitting down is the best strategy.
