HARVEY, IRMA, MARIA, LAS VEGAS, AND NATE. In recent weeks, our nation has been hit by one storm after another. Not to even mention the storm brewing in the NFL or the fires in California! I’m reminded of the words of Paul, “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come” (2 Timothy 3:1). “Perilous” means difficult, dangerous, furious, or hard to bear. That sure seems to describe our day!
I HAVE JUST RETURNED from a fun-filled week in Washington D.C. Our Student Pastor, Todd Hickox, asked a while back if I would go with him and some students to Student Life University 201. He thought his “patriotic pastor” would enjoy it.
WELCOME TO GOD & COUNTRY DAY!
I know that many of you look forward to this day every year. Why? Because you love our God and you love our country, and it is a rare treat to get to celebrate both on the same day!
VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL will begin tomorrow morning! VBS is for boys and girls who were born before August 31, 2012, through the 5th Grade. VBS will meet this Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. until noon.
THE SOUTHERN BAPTIST CONVENTION annual meeting will be this week in Phoenix, Arizona. Messengers from churches from all across America will gather to hear reports, conduct business, hear soul-stirring music, and be challenged from God’s Word.
