In this episode, Rev. Gibson shares her favorite podcasts, her philosophy of sermon style and delivery, and how to prepare for a sermon (even when you don’t feel so good). Johnny gets excited because he manages to get Shawn Mullins, Eric Clapton, and J.J. Cale into this week’s podcast.
Johnny was a confirmation sponsor for new church member Richie Scherer, and Reverend Dean Beverly Gibson was actually sitting in the pews this week for her daughter’s confirmation. Bishop Russell Kendrick gave a rousing sermon and beautiful service at Christ Church Cathedral’s 11th Annual Celebration. Due to all the festivities, Rev. Gibson suggested that we put together a Pulpit To Pew episode of some of the bonus material she and Johnny have cut from other shows.
