[This is the last week of my first time teaching Preacher And His Work in the Bear Valley Bible Institute.  As I wind down that class, the above, which was published in the POWER publication, Southaven, Mississippi, several years ago, seems a fitting summary of what seems to me a proper philosophy for the gospel preacher.  Hope you find it helpful]
