If you’re going to counsel people – and that’s all my ministry is, it’s a counseling ministry more than anything else – people have to believe that they can trust you and that they can listen to you, that you’re going to try to help them and not just politically try to convert them to your views.

We ministers have undoubtedly failed to connect and apply Christianity to the practical everyday problems of the average man. In this, we have failed to follow in Christ’s footsteps. For the religion which He taught and revealed in His own life and ministry was an intensely practical and down-to-earth affair.
