How To Introduce a Preacher

"Just tell em I'm a nobody that's tryin to tell everybody 'bout Somebody that can save anybody. That's all you need to tell em."

This is a quote by Denver Moore, whose incredible story is told in the bestselling book, Same Kind of Different As Me by Ron Hall and Denver Moore (with Lynn Vincent). The occasion of the quote is when Denver was asked to preach at New Mount Calvary Baptist Church in Fort Worth, Texas, and Ron asked him how he wanted to be introduced.

If you have not read Same Kind of Different As Me, I highly recommend it! It tells the true story of a dangerous, homeless drifter who grew up picking cotton in virtual slavery (Denver Moore), an upscale art dealer accustomed to the world of Armani and Chanel (Ron Hall), a gutsy woman with a stubborn dream (Deborah Hall), and how the Lord caused their paths to intersect in a way that would change them all.
