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...

Out with Nehemiah & in with John
I'm going through Nehemiah, verse by verse, on Sundays and next week looks to be my last message of many from this fantastic book of the Bible. Every week I seem to find my favorite passage in the book. Seriously, I do. Nehemiah just inpsires me. And the book that bears his name has a boat load of relevance for the church today. It's easy to see us in the lives of those people way back then. I'll miss Nehemiah, no doubt, but I'm equally excited about our next stop: the book of John. I've preached and taught from John at various times, but I have never gone verse by verse through the whole book with a congregation in a "sermon series". I've started to gather resources for this upcoming series and I am very open to any input you may have. Got a catchy series title for me? Know of a good commentary? Please let me know. Thanks!
