Remembering July 30, 2008

  On July 30, 2008, the Shiloh Metropolitan Baptist Church of Jacksonville met to call a new pastor. I was one of two names to be considered that Wednesday night. I had mixed emotions.

TODAY’S SERMON: “What It Means To Trust In God” (Psalm 27)

It’s the Lord’s Day!

Today, I plan to end our 2014 Summer Psalm Series at the Shiloh Church with a message from Psalm 27, entitled, “What it Means to Trust in God.” The point of the message is that God is worthy of your trust in every situation. Specifically, you can trust God in the good days (27:1-6) and in the bad days (27:7-14).

 The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? – Psalm 27:1 (ESV)

Join us for worship at the Shiloh Church at 7:45 or 10:30 AM (EST). Both services will be live streamed.

Today’s Sermon: “Celebrating the Majesty of God” (Psalm 8)

It’s the Lord’s Day!

Today, at the Shiloh Metropolitan Baptist Church, I plan to continue our Summer Psalm Series with a message from Psalm 8, entitled, “Celebrating the Majesty of God.” The message of this brief but beautiful psalm is that all of creation is a call to worship the greatness and goodness of God.

O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! - Psalm 8:1a, 9 (ESV)

Join us for worship at the Shiloh Church at 7:45 or 10:30 AM (EST). Both services will be streamed lived.
