I grew up when Diff'rent Strokes was a popular television show. That's no big deal unless your last name is Willis. To this day I still hear those famous words popularized by Arnold: "Whatchu talkin bout Willis?" Usually they are uttered by someone looking at me as though I may have never heard it before. Yeah, right! Well this blog is what I (Willis) am talkin bout...my thoughts, observations & opinions. Enjoy...

Delmarva Family Camp

Well, I finally returned to the Delmarva Family Camp up in Delaware. It's been over a decade since my last time there. I spoke Monday night along with David Jones who preaches across town in nearby Hampton, VA. It was good to see many folks I hadn't seen in years and it's always a treat to see Ray & Gyneth Bennett. Ray's one of the most influential preachers in my life. I'll never forget the first time I heard him. It was via a cassette tape and I had never heard anything like it! When he's on there's no one like Ray in the pulpit. It was hot at Delmarva and I just about preached myself to death. It's funny how I get going up there. People are "amening" and talking back to you and the encouragement gets you going. I hope I get invited back next year. At least I think I got my right wing street cred back!

Something about "right wing street cred" that just sounds like an oxymoron.

So what sermon did you preach? Somehow I don't think it was
about having a good relationship with your spouse. But that was a practical, timely, and biblically solid message. I still have a copy of your outline in my files, and have used it on occasion.

I will be at Hillsboro in a couple of weeks. Should be good.

I know it was great to be back at Delmarva. I wish I could have been there with you.

YOU should have done, "We're STILL Duped, Deluded, and Deceived."

Text: Luke 8:40-56 (with Mark 5:21-43 & Matt 9:18-26)

A distraught father, a dying daughter & a desperate woman.
