- About This Sermon
In A Man Called Norman, preacher Mike Adkins tells the story of his eccentric neighbor whom everyone is afraid of. Norman is the small town outcast who is elderly, lives alone and talks mostly to himself. Mike’s life and heart are forever changed when he puts aside his busy schedule to include this eccentric neighbor in his life. At first, Norman responds cautiously to Mike’s persistent friendship before eventually committing his life to Christ. Norman teaches us we all are in a rush in this world and oftentimes don't take time for individuals who are slower, maybe not as clean, and with whom we have nothing in common. It requires work to get to know them. In this week’s message, we learn God can use us if we’ll slow down and reach over the fence or across street to express His love.
