  1. Bobby: Hour of Power is an inspiring 2nd church for me. I get a lot out of your sermons, and the choir music is marvelous. It reminds me of my earlier years when I was able to sing in the choir of a large Presbyterian church in Cincinnati. I really love the traditional hymns and the classical music that are mainstays of your choir. Unfortunately, our church has gone completely to contemporary music which I do not like.

    One comment I would like to offer. While you look good in a business suit, I really think the robe you were wearing set the right spiritual tone of a traditional church service. It obviously was kind of special, and is rarely seen anymore in church services. I personally would like to see you go back to it. Regardless, I will continue to watch the HOP services, and support your ministry as long as I can.

  2. As a younger (41 years old) and long time viewer of HOP, wearing the robe was a very special reminder of the history of the ministry. I realize times and tastes change, but it was a wonderful connection to the ministry of Bobby’s Grandfather. It also lends a certain dignity to the telecast as every other preacher wears a suit or jeans…it gives a certain credibility to the ministry.

    I understand it being a doctoral robe but why not simply have one made that is in line with Bobby’s degree?
