: Tonight I get the wonderful privilege to perform a wedding here at OBC. Weddings have become one of my favorite things to do as a pastor. It is such a perfect opportunity to put all of the emphasis upon Christ and to be able to preach the gospel to all in attendance. It is interesting and awesome to consider the gospel I proclaimed yesterday in the jail is the same that I preached to myself this morning and will preach again tonight.
:: Last week my daughter (Alexis, 3) acted like a liberal protestant female pastor and baptized…err…sprinkled my Treo650 with a bottle of water. It was my bad because it was not in my pocket. Anyway, I was able to upgrade and the 755P is all that. It (the Treo) actually became an avenue to talk about Christ as some guy yelled across the gas station to me to find out if I had a 755 and if it was good. We were able to talk about what I was doing (checking to see if I broke the 45 min preaching rule this sunday am). It was very cool to have a time to talk with this guy about the gospel and ministry.
:: Colin from Unashamed Workman was just blessed with a third child. I love the picture on his blog because it captures that heaven sent gleam in a new parent’s eye. Join them in rejoicing.
:: The new Beastie Boys album is out and is excellent study music. All instrumental; pretty fresh tracks and not what you would think of with the Beastie Boys. Perfect for studying. They have a video up if you are interested. Thanks for all the feedback on study music. We are a diverse people, no doubt, but hopefully chiefly united around and for the gospel.
