LORD, PLEASE SPEAK TO ME!  (He is.)

“So many are looking for special revelation from God while it sits on their shelves gathering dust.” – Burk Parsons

 

For the Kingdom

I, along with Dana Kluzek & Mike Lewis, have met with our Finance Team to present and discuss steps for moving forward with our fast-approaching Debt Retirement campaign.  What I have personally seen in scripture, as well as discussed with pastor friends of mine, is very exciting.  I am convicted that we will not only pay off our new-construction debt early, but quickly.  More on this in next week’s Navigator.

 

The following mid-week opportunities for learning will begin Aug. 26th, 6:30pm

QUOTES of the WEEK

And..,

“What one generation tolerates, the next generation will embrace.” ― John Wesley

 

LAUGHTER IS GOOD MEDICINE

And…,

A funny thing happened while I was preaching in Kerrville.  During some free time I was convicted that people needed something to laugh about in this bad-news-filled society in which we find ourselves.  The home I stayed in had a piano in my bedroom.   So, I wrote a quick parody of Neil Diamond’s ‘Sweet Caroline’ called ‘Sweet Quarantine’, recorded it and posted it on my Facebook page.

Well, apparently a lot of people needed a laugh because it’s now been viewed over 12 thousand times on Facebook.  Interestingly, it was even shared by Christy Hartin from KCBD Lubbock. (And she shared that I was one of the pastors at BHBC.  You’re welcome for the free publicity.)  Enjoy…
