Where to preach. Preke hvor? ¿A dónde predicar?

ENGLISH Speaking in church is nice, many preachers do it. But, if you want to catch fish it’s better to cast your nets outside the boat.

Who is John Spencer?

John Spencer is not Diana Spencer’s less known brother. Even though my mother-in-law is quite proud of the fact that her son-in-law actually spoke to Lady Di, I myself am more proud of the fact that I know John. Sort of.
