Preaching Matters – Here’s a link for the preachers. “Preaching Matters is a monthly video series designed to equip, encourage and inspire those who teach God’s word.

Actors endorse presidential candidates, and people listen. Musicians write books, and people read them. Athletes pontificate on same-sex marriage, and are given a platform.”
