Well it’s Tuesday morning and I haven’t posted the weekly Sunday Evening Reflections. We were away over the weekend so you’ll see below what we were doing. Hope you all had a great Labor Day weekend!
- I heard several people say on Saturday evening that two services are here to stay at LifePoint. Although it was a holiday weekend we had well attended services Saturday evening.
- I think what blows me away is how our people truly own the vision of LifePoint and are doing all they can do in Christ to see it come to fruition. As you walk the building on the weekend you see people doing their part and just loving it. I am so privileged to be a part of this great work of God in central Maryland!
- Sunday morning was like most mornings even with it being a holiday weekend. I love being in the Video Cafe. We had a goodly number of people there this Sunday. We have a great time together.
- We took off from LifePoint right after the last service on Sunday & drove to Rome, NY for a Baldwin Reunion. Our nephews designed and printed Baldwin Reunion t-shirts for us all. It was a hoot! Paul and Tyler are great artists and t-shirt designers. Thanks you guys!
- We drove back yesterday. There were three construction zones that slowed us down by 1 1/2 hours in getting home, so it was late.
- What made the time pass was the book Louise & I took turns reading out loud. Lou did more reading than I did. I did more driving than she did. The book is entitled, The Day the World Came to Town, by Jim Defede. It is the the small town of Gander, Newfoundland, and their corporate gift of hospitality of taking in 85 plane loads of people stranded because of the 9/11 attacks. It is an awesome read. You’ll love it. It reminds me once again of the power of hospitality. I know that Bill Hybels shares that leadership is an important gift in the local church. I would think hospitality is right up there as well.
Hope you all have a GREAT week.
