As most of you know, I was born into the family of a Baptist country preacher. Dad always said he didn’t have enough to be a Pentecostal and had too much to be a Baptist. He was kind of a Baptiscostal. One day I told dad that I spoke in tongues and he said he spoke with his tongue too. I never seemed to get anything on him. He was just too old and wise.
He is in Heaven now and I wonder what he would say about his once strict, straight-laced, tea-totaling, fundamentalist, preacher son, speaking about evangelism to a gathering of Episcopal Bishops. That’s right Episcopal Bishops in Sherman, Texas this weekend. So you can see I have come a long way baby. Did I fail to mention that they are charismatic Episcopal Bishops. And as Daddy would say, they speak with their tongues too.
