Denny Smith is a baby boomer whose interests range from politics, to sports (basketball and running), to reading, gardening, fishing, the internet, Bible study, writing and other things as well. That which is foremost is Bible study, writing, reading, and physical fitness (running).
He developed his web site, www.dennysmith.net, as a repository for his articles and for the audio sermons of a good friend of his, Waymon Swain, who he considers to be an outstanding gospel preacher. Waymon has a doctorate and two masters degrees but never mentions it nor does he add the titles on as an appendage to his name. This is as it should be for in the kingdom of God we are all equal. Waymon lived in Africa doing missionary work with his wife for a time in his younger years and has preached for over 50 years and is still going strong.
