Sunday Morning Blessing: Dr. James A. Forbes

Dr. James Forbes, Senior Pastor Emeritus of the storied Riverside Church in New York, is one of my favorite preachers. It's not just his eloquence, or his erudition or elegance. He reminds me of the preachers I listened to when I was a young freshman preacher at Bishop College. Preachers who by their very exercise of their gift, showed us how to use eternal truth as the frame through which we intelligently view the issues of our day. 

There must be justice...not just a narrow call for 'right', but an orderly right balance in our human existence. This is prophetic preaching at its best. Dr. Forbes models it in a way that is both authentic and attractive.
