There is a very smart website called SmartPastor.com. The site links interesting tidbits, articles, blogs and other resources for pastors. The man behind the curtain is a pastor from Loveland, Colorado named Jeff Berg. His bio describes his humble beginnings.
Born naked, helpless and unable to fend for himself, Jeff Berg overcame his inauspicious start to become the Pastor of Family Ministries at LifeSpring Covenant Church in Loveland, Colorado.
How can you not root for an underdog story like that? Occasionally Jeff will tarnish his Smart Pastor credentials by linking to my humble ramblings. The last time that Jeff linked to my site he described me in a way that brought tears to my eyes.
Dave Burchett, the most entertaining Christian author you never heard of, finished his series of posts, “Sentences that change your life.”
I was not prepared for such an honor. But I have quickly scribbled some notes on one of my books that hasn’t sold. So here goes…
I would like to thank the thousands and even millions of you who have not purchased my books for making this award possible. I would also like to thank the hundreds of churches who have not asked me to speak at their retreats and services. I would like to thank the bookstores who ruthlessly tossed my book on the half-price table. Without all of you I would not have been able to claim this title. To quote the Great Carnac from the great Johnny Carson: “May a camel caravan make a pit stop on your lawn.”
Note to the humor impaired – The preceding paragraph was tongue-in-cheek. I do not write to get famous or rich (although I am willing to accept either for the Kingdom). However God chooses to use these efforts is fine with me. At least the SmartPastor thinks I’m entertaining. If you are curious about what so many of you have managed to miss you can check out the books by clicking here. Hey, I may be anonymous but I am not shameless!
Blessings and grace,
What’s His Name
