One of the issues I kept saying to my students is you have to learn to interrupt. When you raise your hand at a meeting, by the time they get to you, the point is not germane.

The truth is, the secular world isn't too enamored with Jesus. And they're not too enamored with someone who is leading people to Jesus.
