Earl Palmer taught at Laity Lodge this past weekend, leading a retreat for Westlake Hills Presbyterian Church. I know that many of my blog readers are familiar with Earl, but if you’re not, let me give a brief bio. Earl, a Presbyterian minister, served in four churches, including Berkeley Presbyterian Church in California and University Presbyterian Church in Seattle, Washington. After his retirement from University Pres, Earl became the Preaching Pastor-in-Residence for National Presbyterian Church in Washington D.C. (You can listen to or download his sermons here.)
Since his retirement, Earl has continued his speaking and writing ministry through Earl Palmer Ministries. One of his key efforts is providing leadership for The Kindlings Muse, which are “live, local events taped for podcast and featuring a live audience and round-table of thoughtful creatives and gadflies discussing ideas, beliefs and values shaping life today.” You can access these delightful podcasts from the Earl Palmer Ministries website as well as from iTunes.
During one of his lectures this weekend, Earl was talking about how the basics of the faith enable us to withstand the power of Satan. As an example, he recited The Apostles’ Creed in world record time. If you want to hear proof, check out this YouTube video:
