Mints and Ministry

June 16, 2010

I laughed when I read this counsel from Brian Croft. Preachers, take heed!

The enemy is trying really hard to put up as many barriers between us and our people.  Therefore, whether in a hospital or greeting people as they leave on Sunday, eliminate one by always carrying gum or a mint…and don’t be afraid to use them.

Read the whole post.



  1. Never underestimate the power of a mint – actually, this reminds me of some of the best advice I received in my homiletics classes – if you have voice problems, or want to avoid them, put one Tic Tac in the corner of your mouth as you speak. Its presence there will keep your mouth from getting dry & it’s easy to speak with it in there. (Just a note, I’ve always used white mint Tic Tacs, rather than Orange or Lime ones, just in case it ever flew out of my mouth – white would look like a tooth!)

    Minty is also the name of our Ministry INTernship Year here in TSCF in NZ. We encourage our students to be “fresh and green” (Psalm 92:12-15). There’s value in Mintiness.

  2. Hmmmmm…..

    Luke 6:38
    Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.”

    Let those words sink in and surf on over to http://www.hybridhondas.com. Well you’re there please click on a link or two. It costs nothing and by doing so you’ll be helping a fellow brother so he can continue helping others. By the way. This is really helping.

    Please spread the word to other brothers and sisters and be blessed.

  3. Classic, just classic. Love the practicality of this quote. 😉
