"Besides every perceived Bad Boy is supposed to end up in full time ministry right? So, what did I do? Run!
"I’ve avoided the pulpit with trepidation. But just like Jonah, I continue to end up somehow in the belly of the calling where I have played a pastor or reverend father more than anything else in my acting life.
God does have an amazing sense of humour. I’m not even sure as I write this if I’ve fully escaped the CALL! Until date I still frighten myself every time I’ve had to speak in a church because when I take the pulpit, the Holy Spirit takes over."
