I went with some hesitation, knowing he was a mega-church kind of pastor and that it might not be my style.

I went, and I did.

Here’s his latest piece on the Resurrection. I’ve heard some ask  if he’s trying too hard in this video. What do you think? What do you find compelling, or not, about the piece?
