"A [preacher] who does not love art, poetry, music and nature can be dangerous. Blindness and deafness toward the beautiful are not incidental; they are necessarily reflected in his [preaching]." — BXVI
No tears, but I thought this was quite good. Toward the end I found myself saying: "I got the point!" But I suppose it is good to hammer home an important message, even if it means a little extra repetition. Thank you.
I rarely listen to myself preach. However, I listened to this one b/c something told me that I sounded scolding. There were moments when it did sound like I was wagging my finger. . .but as I always say, "The preacher preaches to himself first!"
