You might be surprised to know that I’ve got a lot more to say than can fit on this blog. Just ask my wife.
That’s why I do speaking engagements, too, and have been for fifteen years. I’ve addressed groups large and small on topics as diverse as Scripture, evangelization, marriage and spirituality.
Although my true speaking-topic-loves are Scripture and Evangelization, I’m happy to speak on other Catholic themes and shape my talk based on the audience.
Right now I’m not receiving any financial compensation from these engagements (although I do ask that the host organization pay for my travel expenses, and in lieu of a speaker’s fee I ask for a donation to Little Flowers Foundation). I look at my speaking engagements as a tithe, in the hope that I can help others draw closer to Christ.
The message of my book Who Is Jesus Christ? is that the Lord is waiting to meet us – chasing us down in fact – in Scripture and in the circumstances and experiences of our lives. If I can serve others in seeing Him, encountering Him, embracing Him, I consider that a privilege.
