Bruce and I have been very close, if not best, friends since Middle School in Dallas, Texas in the early 1970s.  Bruce, more than any other person, consistently prayed for me for 17 years when I was in my Prodigal Son period.  When everyone outside my family had given up on me, Bruce kept right on praying. Bruce is an author, church renewal consultant and senior pastor of a very large church in McKinney, Texas (called Christ Fellowship).
