Got to spend a couple hours today with Lynn Anderson. I always walk away from conversations with Lynn with more joy in my heart and more commitment to the work of God in this world. So many people who follow larger-than-life ministers wind up disappointed in what they learn. For me, it's been just the opposite. Since taking over "Lynn's pulpit" in 1991 (after he was here 19 years!), I've found him to be even more authentic. Oh sure, there are the humorous stories about how he could never find his keys. But as a minister, shepherd, and friend, his tracks are genuine. Lynn is exactly my dad's age, and he has "fathered" me in ministry, just as he has so many others. To see what he's up to these days, check here.
