This book captures over three decades of Dr. Smith Sr’s prayers, pastor pens and sermon outlines. First, he demonstrates that the Bible is a lasting and sure foundation for powerful preaching. Secondly, Pastor Smith demonstrates that relevant preaching does not seek to hide God in techniques of popularity and hunger for quick success. Thirdly, Dr. Smith Sr., demonstrates that we cannot lead people to God with godless preaching and teaching. A commitment to the Gospel of Jesus Christ does not require us to despise, demean and disrespect other faith traditions. When Jesus healed he did not ask for birth certificates, nationality oaths ethnic or racial loyalty oaths. Jesus is an inclusive Redeemer and Liberator. This book is a must read for pastors, professors, parents, students and others who desire to grow in the knowledge of preaching, praying and applying God’s words to the deeper human rights struggle. The section on prayers reflect petitions to God for varying occasions; congregational prayers, public events, church anniversaries baby dedications, bereavements, sickness, intercessory prayers, weddings, funerals and a host of others. Using ordinary words, they reflect sincerity, simplicity and selflessness. Lastly, in the tradition of keeping in touch with the congregation, the Pastor Pen is a weekly bulletin Sunday writing that varies from current events, biblical subjects, and others challenges the church may be experiencing including financial appeals and a reminder that giving is a part of worshiping.
