Happy Veterans Days! Thanks to all the veterans who have served our country to protect our freedom. This Sunday was my 5th pastoral anniversary at the Shiloh Church!  May the Lord grant that we will have many more years of fruitful Christian service together as pastor and people. These past five years have definitely not been easy. No pastorate is. But I do not have the words to describe the sense of joy and privilege it has been to serve...

It was good to be in worship with the wonderful congregation of the Shiloh Church today! I led the congregation in corporate singing, which is always a joy. Glad to have all of our guests in worship today. We celebrated the Lord’s Table in both of our worship services. Our team prepared a video of the to mark the 5th anniversary of my call to Shiloh. Very moving. I continued my series on Revelation 2-3. I preached from Revelation 2:18-29 – “Be...

We had a good day of worship at the Shiloh Church today. It feels odd not to teach my Bible Study Fellowship group this semester. But I am so glad not to have to prepare another lesson each week. Need the rest. As always, it was good to have all of our guests in worship today, including an old friend from Los Angeles. Praise God for the four persons who were baptized today! I continued my brief series on Revelations 2-3, “Let the Church...

Saturday evening, I had the opportunity to preach chapel for the Jacksonville Jaguars. I am always amazed by how seriously the players get when the word is...

I had a more than 10-hour flight from Rome to Atlanta Saturday. Then another hour home. Wiped out! I should not preached. I was really tired. But I pressed on. I was so glad to be home with my family and to worship with the Shiloh Church family. I was also glad to have our guests, including the family reunion that joined us for worship. Praise God for the four persons who were baptized today! Shout-out to our Pastor of Outreach, Reginald...

I am on my way to Rome, Italy, for a weeklong preaching conference. A small, intensive study group will study texts all week and visit related sites. Please pray for safe arrival and fruitful study. We had a great day at Shiloh today! It is a joy to pastor such wonderful people. I missed teaching my Bible Study Fellowship group today. It was my privilege to lead the congregation in the Lord’s Table today. We also extended the...
