Enough of me preaching… I’m not fit to hold a candle to this man. They called Spurgeon ‘The Prince of Preachers’, but I was fortunate to be alive and sit under the ministry of another Prince of Preachers, Dr Kenneth Connolly. I also had the privilege of making his acquaintance first-hand, and spending quality leisure time with him, during which he mentored me in theology and the craft of preaching, at no charge.
Alas, he is with the Lord now, therefore although he is now comforted in Abraham’s bosom, there is consequently one less preacher now left on earth who really knew how to do the job, and in this dark age, we need such preachers more than ever. God’s removal of Dr Connolly from among the realm of the living is a judgement, not on him, but on mankind, for behold, “the days come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD”.
In the computer game jargon of kids today, there is a word: ‘Pwned’.
It means to totally conquer, dominate, humiliate, convince, or win over an opponent or situation. I can’t think of a better word to describe Ken Connelly’s mastery of the pulpit. Click the link below and you will receive the blessing of hearing Dr Connolly totally pwning a congregation some twenty years ago on the subject of Ezekiel’s vision of the Valley Of Dry Bones:
