On March 15, 2014, I participated in the radio program “Up for Debate” on Moody Radio. The topic was “Altar Calls” and my debate partner was Fred Zaspel. It was not much of a debate, since Dr. Zaspel and I have very similar views. You can listen to the program on Moody Radio’s website.

I preached in chapel at Union University on March 28, 2014. You can watch the sermon video at the Union website.
