No one has ever accused author Wayne McLaughlin of being boring in the pulpit. Too liberal maybe, too Biblical maybe, but not boring. Wayne's parishioners say they come to church with anticipation of what he will say each Sunday. They almost always leave worship enlightened, inspired, challenged, or disturbed, but never bored.

The author of these provocative sermons is a happy introvert. He gives blood regularly; and he enjoys photography, genealogy, blogging, and reading about meditation. He has two cats named Oliver and Tillich.
