Your gift of ‘straight talk’ as well as humor. Dear Chris, It’s redundant – I know – but I want to thank you for the blessing you’ve been in the life of Trinity church – and in my own life as well. Your gift of ‘straight talk’ as well as humor is able to ‘get thru’ to people some of the real issues they face. I know that happened on Sunday. Wow. Thanks again for your Labor of Love. It really made a difference. Blessings.Trinity Church
