Thoughts from the weekend:
Several wonderful events yesterday:
Baptismal service: Congratulations to Brendon and Wendy Bettenhausen! It is wonderful to see you grow in God!
One young lady from Mexico accepted Christ.
Making my day: Having lunch with new attendees. Including our staff and a couple of deacons and elders we had around 30 people!
It is exciting to be around people who are excited about God - and about our church.
Excitement is contagious!
The "visitors" luncheon had people from 8 to 80.
Great generational mix.
Perfection is hard to reach except in things like baseball.
Congratulations to Philip Humber who pitched a perfect game on Saturday.
In hearing Philip Humber talk - it sounds like he is a Christian.
If the White Sox pitching can continue to thrive and if Rios, Dunn and Beckham begin to hit and if......(a lot of if's)....then the White Sox might be competitive with the Detroit Tigers this year.
None of us is perfect (especially me).
No one is perfect except for Jesus.
My men's life group is filled with men who are genuine, real and honest. I appreciate that.
One of the best groups of men I have every discipled.
Throughout the "ups" and "downs" of life - Jesus is the one constant.
I just keep telling myself, that with God in control, "everything is fine. Everything is fine."
Finished reading, "Calico Joe" by John Grisham and started reading, "The Presidents Club" by Nancy Gibbs.
"Calico Joe" is a wonderful, short novel with the theme of redemption and forgiveness, set in the world of baseball.
Don't forget this Friday - 7:00 P.M. to 9:00 P.M. Visiting pastor - Ed Funderburk. Come and learn how to effectively minister!
Love you all.......
