Today was a warm, beautiful day in Jacksonville. And the Lord blessed us with a wonderful day of worship at Shiloh.

I am grateful for all the guests who were in worship with us today.

In new members class, I taught on “What Shiloh Expects From You.” I plan to list the seven points of the lesson in a post later this week.

Our choir sang up a storm today. It was rich. And the pre-message solo really set the tone for the preaching of the word.

Our elementary choir also led us in music today. As always, I praise God for the participation of our children in worship.

This month, I am preaching on financial stewardship and Christian generosity. I preached today a message on 1 Chronicles 29:10-19. I called the message: “A Godly Attitude Toward Material Possessions.”

I paced myself much better a 8 than I did at 10. I was excited about the material in both services. But my heart was really full at 10 AM and I preached much harder than I intended to. What a mighty God we serve!

Next Sunday’s Sermon: “Worship Through Giving” (Malachi 3:6-12).

Praise God for the new members who were added to our church family today.

This weekend, we funeralized Deacon William Hamp. He was 98 years old and had been a member of Shiloh for more than 60 years. He has served the Lord at Shiloh in countless ways. And he will be missed by many. Please pray for his widow, family, and for the entire Shiloh Church family.

The Cowboys pulled out a 26-20 overtime victory today over the Chiefs.

The Seahawks beat the Jaguars like they stole something!
