Once when the Bishop was visiting our Church, I was in the altar as an altar boy, and as he was getting ready to give the sermon, I asked him what the best sermon he ever gave, he told us the best sermon is the shortest one.
I have to say that in my experience, going back a fairly long time, most bishops do not adhere to said policy.
If I remember correctly he also was long winded, but he also loved a good laugh.
The Lord gathers his sheep, I fear I am a goat. Lord have mercy.
"A Christian is someone who follows and worships a perfectly good God who revealed his true face through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth.“
