    During the preaching, she would be the congregation.
    At the end of most sermons, she “got saved.” What a successful preacher I was!
    I always wanted to become a spiritual giant — to really be somebody in the world of spirituality.

    There was much I was going to be that I have not become.

    Yeah right.
