Yes, this will go in his permanent personnel file.

So... after Pastor Jeff Hooker & I organized a "pulpit swap" for the Sunday after our denomination's General Assembly, I get this note from concerned parishioner, Marc D:

"Also, Jeff didn't quote CS Lewis. You might want to have a talk with him."

Thank you, Marc, for bringing this to my attention.

These things are always difficult, but you did the right thing.


  1. I am still laughing!!! Although now that I think about it, I heard you in Athens yesterday and I don't remember a single CS Lewis quote from you! How could that be?????

  2. The legends of my "always" quoting CSL are greatly exaggerated. As CSL once put it, “It is always the novice who exaggerates.”

  4. Nor did I quote The Princess Bride. Please don’t file charges too quickly; it’s a rare occurrence, I assure you.
