A Question for those who read my Homiletics posts:

Why?  Why are you reading my homiletics?  Are you in BSF?  Are you studying in seminary?  Are you comparing your own homiletics to mine?  I'm really just curious.  I did think about not posting homiletics anymore because if anyone is just copying my homiletics for an assignment, they'd be missing out on meeting with God for themselves and I would hate to be a part of someone missing out on meeting with God. So, let me know.  Why do you read my homiletics?
