Preaching Only Two Times |

TBC Staff

The 18th century evangelical preacher John Berridge (1716-1793) was called in by the Anglican bishop and reproved for preaching at all hours of the day and on every day of the week.

“My lord,” he replied, “I preach only at two times.”

The bishop pressed him, “And which are they, Mr. Berridge?”

He quickly responded, “In season and out of season, my lord”
