  1. Thank you for that very moving sermon, Crispin. There is so much truth in what you said. Some of what I will take from this is compassion over criticism, mercy over maligning, healing over hurting, love over lashing out, and ultimately allowing God to fix me from the inside out over worrying about me fixing others. Good stuff, Bro. Thanks and Peace. TA
