William Bruneau

I am one of six preachers in our small (60) Episcopal mission that follows what we call Total Ministry. Three of us are lay, and I am particulary unschooled (and 75), so every time I am humbled and daunted by my task. Certainly my sermons are guided by the Holy Spirit but I never feel that is enough. Leaning on your commentary (among others) gives me a breadth that would otherwise be lacking. I assemble a bunch of commentaries, save them for reflection, and then the Holy Spirit inspires me and sends me on my way. I am so grateful for your sharing of your knowledge, giving me the best possible context to elevate the faith of my congregation. Most of my sermons would not be much poorer without your help. I am now working on my 113th sermon and you have helped to guide me on many of them. When I do use your commentary directly I always credit you. I know our other preachers also benefit from your kind words.
I am ashamed that I haven't thanked you before, and do realize that there are probably many more like me who do not respond with comments but are indebted nonetheless. Thank you again 113 times!
Bill Bruneau, Saint Francis in the Redwoods Episcopal Church, Willits CA
