Monday Morning Quarterback

A worship weekend. All the services seemed to have a great spirit. The 10:45 was full, as usual, and the other services run about 75-90% full.  We really have a wide age-spread… young and old.

I preached sermon 10 in the War of the World’s series. This one was on worldliness… Probably 30 people or more responded to the invitation to receive Jesus. It’s so amazing to see their excited faces when they look at me and smile, or wave, or have tears streaming down their cheeks.

I talked to 1 guy who got out of prison and 1 guy who’s going to prison and 3 guys who I urged to come to Celebrate Recovery. I love these guys! They keep us all real. One of them, a pizza delivery guy who stayed around after delivering pizzas for our worship team, got saved. Very cool.

We had some technical problems with video…and some of our stage monitors died during the 9:00 service. But, God works IN SPITE of technology.

The temperature in the Lassenview Gym during the Classic service never got below 81. My shirt was soaked with sweat. Good thing I bring extra t-shirts to change into!

Today will be a good day to veg out… then I have to prepare 8 talks for my Africa Trip (and powerpoints!), and then it’s run, run, run for the rest of the summer!

Oh… today, I’m putting together my daughter’s doll house.  The directions go up to “Step 28”.  Pray for my sanctification.

““…On this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.” Mt 16:18.
