Mississippi Wisdom

While living and working in Mississippi for nearly a decade (1978-1986), I happened across some wisdom which has defined my philosophy of life and ministry ever since.  Three brief bullet points, hand-printed on faded construction paper, tacked to a crumbling bulletin board, in a small school hard up against Sellers Creek, in the “quarters” of Mendenhall.

  • Speak to basic human need.
  • Use terms that people understand.
  • Focus sharply on Jesus Christ.

A succinct list of resolutions for this new year.
