Periodically people will ask me why I have been successful in business. This question is funny to me because I don’t actually feel all that successful – mostly I feel like I am a work in progress. But nevertheless I do get the question. I normally joke with the questioner and move on to another topic. Today I thought I would offer a real answer. What has made the difference in my life? In 2001 I was Baptized and the resulting relationship I formed with Jesus Christ has made all the difference.
Throughout my life I never really looked forward to going to church until Michele asked me to go to church with her. I soon learned that she wanted me to go to a BAPTIST church. Anyone who knows me would think that I might have problems at a Baptist church. Soon I learned that Wilshire Baptist Church is not your typical Baptist church; rather it is MY type of church. Why?
I think it starts at the top. Our pastor, George Mason, is one of the best narrative preachers in the United States (according to lots of folks I have talked to). George was Parade Magazine’s high school football player of the year and he went on to quarterback for Miami in college. Evidently he was the last Miami QB not to join the NFL. I have started loading his sermons on PodServe so that you too can enjoy the sermons we have come to love. Here is one I especially liked called Get You Up. If you want to find out more just give me a call or shoot me an email.
