I have a running joke with a good friend of mine. He calls me a preacher. I say - I am not a preacher! That is not a positive word in our culture today. I am a Communicator. I communicate on Sunday mornings, in mid-size communities, in small groups, through writing books, blogs and tweets... in large and small ways - I am a communicator. Okay, okay! I am also a preacher. It is a good word and it is a great calling. It is just that the connotations of that word are so bad in our post-Christendom culture. So when I can, I communicate...
But that is not my point for this post.
Here's my point. I have been listening to quite a few "communicators" in recent weeks. Typically I only listen to communicators when I am driving and have the radio turned on to catch part of the radio preachers. I generally don't watch videos of preaching... but I have been.
This is still not my point, but I am getting closer to it.
