WHATCHU TALKIN BOUT WILLIS?
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!
