Happy Birthday Crystal! I am not good at surprises. But I did a pretty good job this weekend. I sent from my niece Harriette, who is very close to Crystal, to visit for the weekend while I am away. I think it is the best birthday gift I have ever given Crystal. I am writing this post from Chicago. I filled in this Sunday for my friend, Romell Williams, at the Lilydale Progressive Baptist Church, as he is recovering from surgery. Romell has...

Great day of worship at Shiloh today. Grateful for all the guests who were in worship with us today. As usual, our children choir did a great job singing in worship today. Praise God for those who were baptized today. I had the opportunity to chat with several new members today. Very encouraging testimonies. I preached from Psalm 3. I called the message, “It’s Not As Bad As It Seems.” The point of the message: Things are never as bad as they...

It was so good to be home with my church family this weekend! Last week, I was in Antigua and Barbuda, speaking for the Eastern Caribbean Baptist Mission led by Dr. Jensworth W.C. Jonas. Crystal joined me on the trip. And we had a great time. I look forward to future Missions partnership with Dr. Jonas and the ECBM. Saturday night, John P. Kee was in concert on our campus. John P. Kee! John Kee did not see “Jesus is Real.” What’s up with that?...

We have a blessed day of worship yesterday at Shiloh. Thanks to all our volunteers who served in any way over the course of the weekend. You make is happen! We distributed our 2011 Annual Report to the church yesterday. It was our first time undertaking something so detailed. I pray it will be received well by the congregation. We did “Blessed Assurance” corporately. I love that hymn! As always, I am grateful for the guests who were with us in...

Good day of worship yesterday. The congregation sung “Holy, Holy, Holy” as our hymn for the day. Wonderful. We celebrated the Lord’s Table yesterday, as is our custom on 1st Sundays. Always a great time of worship and fellowship. We sung “Father I Stretch My Hands to Thee” during Communion. I learned a new verse to this hymn in Pensacola last week. I really like it. It says… “I do believe, I now believeThat Jesus died for meAnd by his blood,...
