I can see stuff you can’t. No, I don’t mean I can see stuff like Haley Joel Osment — “I see dead people.” As my three-year-old grandson said about stuff like that — “Too scawy.” He meant scary.

Rick Warren talks about preaching for “life change.” Others speak of “transformational” preaching. The goal of every preacher I know is to bring an effective message, engaging the worshippers and leading them to a new encounter with God. It’s the “how-to” part of preaching that is hard, however.
