Oo Oo I've got a good one. I've been thinking about this more and more as well:

The impact of a regenerate on an unregenerate environment.  My topic would be:  Even for those not given grace, can a benefit be present?

I'm thinking mainly of family members or siblings growing up.  Perhaps their parents are regenerate and require them to live by those standards.  If they never profess faith but are around that community don't they still get a benefit from that?  Or perhaps coworkers?  Might be a good discussion.  At least food for thought.

Also another topic I was thinking of is for people with brain injuries.  My step daughter was a victim of shaken baby syndrome due to an affair her mother had with a man that threw her against a wall at 13months old.  He hated Arianna's father maybe due to the fact Tim was parenting his daughter as well.  Anyway, she often tells me she doesn't know how to pray or stop being selfish.  She just doesn't understand.  I try to explain the best I know how and tell her not to worry because the desire for God is evidence of his work.   I actually have a few topic suggestions in this area.  Gospel for those with mental disabilities and suggestions on how to teach them how to live in a kingdom way.  Another would include questions on if there is no fruit from someone with such a condition?  Do we look for a modified view of what spiritual fruit is for people with mental disabilities?  I ask this because Ari is one of the most selfish people I have ever met.  Don't get me wrong, I love her with all the love a mother could have. She is able to forgive so easily and take joy is the smallest things.  I wish I was more like her in these areas.  But when it comes to calling attention to herself.  She literally will stop at nothing and I've seen her cry buckets to support an outright lie.  Claiming to swear on God himself it is the truth when we have proof this is not the case.  As a parent it is difficult to know how best to proceed in teaching lessons.  Especially when the person does not have a clear sense of logic or reasoning.  We are wondering if she has the ability to think sequentially at all.  Due to it not being a genetic disorder that presents in similar ways across people but an injury that may or may not have affected the same part of the brain as others injured in the same way is a head scratcher for sure.

Best sermon you ever heard (or favorite preacher/speaker).
A favorite preacher is not something I could answer, but the best sermon I've heard - or the one that sticks out in my mind as being the best that I remember - would be Ten Shekels and A Shirt by Paris Reidhead

I actually first heard snippets when the "Revival Hymn" was circulating sometime in the last 10 years. Having heard them, I was prompted to listen to the whole thing and it made a fair impression on me.
