  1. In your sermon you talked about how you could not run over a raven with your car. In Alabama we have crows, who build their nests in pine trees. Ravens often travel in pairs, while crows are seen in larger groups. … A crow’s tail is shaped like a fan, while the raven’s tail appears wedge-shaped or triangular. Another clue is to listen closely to the birds’ calls. Crows give a cawing sound, but ravens produce a lower croaking sound.

    Now a joke: Why can you not run over a crow with your car. Because there is always another crow sitting in a nearby tree calling “caw, caw (car, car)”.

  2. This came to me at precisely the time I needed it. Thank you!
    I say this because I don’t regularly watch your program although I would like to, but it must have been God nudging me when I turned on TBN and caught the sermon almost in its entirety.
    Moved to tears . You are a masterful speaker who weaves and connects biblical truths with human nature, history and culture

    1. Rachel,

  3. I feel there is a lot of research and study behind each of your sermon, which is very good and help us to understand texts of the Bible in the right context. Your explanation that doves and pigeons are of the same species reminded me of a sermon based on the idea that doves were deeply different than pigeons which is the reason why doves symbolized the Holy Spirit. By the way, you pronounce well pigeon in French.
    You are doing a very good work and the songs and guests before are also very good

    1. Bernard,
