Home sick from Church. Sore throat..cold.. yuck
So I put on the TV to at least see a sermon and found this fellow Joel Osteen. I have seen him from time to time being interviewed but never his Sunday Sermon.
Ya know.......... It was fine. Personal improvement stuff. Reliance on God. Maintaining your faith.Self help.. Like a cross between Paul Harvey and Zig Zigler and Jimmy Swagert.
Encouraging, well delivered, not too gaudy.
This sort of message should be given tangential to going to Church, not as a substitute. This guy should spend his Sunday Worshiping God in Church and then write his encouragements and speeches. IMHO
If I ever met him, I would say, You should start going to Church on Sunday......Duh
I miss Paul Harvey.... My son and I would yell out our guess about who he was telling a story about. It was always something really hokie.
"Mark Twain !" ..
"Young Abe Lincoln!".....
I got it I got it....
"Florence Nightingale !!! "
