Sunday Evening Reflections:

What an awesome and profound weekend. Lots upon which to reflect!


  • Friday evening we didn’t have community group. Louise & I joined one of our elders and his wife at Pier Six in the inner harbor of Baltimore. It was a Dave Koz concert. Being a Bari & Tenor Sax player I always enjoy listening to good Dave Koz and he was excellent! However, Jonathan Butler was on stage with Koz. Butler is obviously a Christ-follower and was awesome as a guitarist. Shelia E was also on stage and is an awesome percussionist as well as being a Christ-follower, so it was just an unbelievable evening.
  • It was hard to totally relax because I had a funeral to do the next morning. It was a man who was 59 years old. As his son put it, he had lost his battle with depression. Yet, the Holy Spirit was present and God was honored. It was a profound time of discussing the deeper issues of this life. Ecclisaites 7:2 reads,

It is better to go to a house of mourning
than to go to a house of feasting,
for death is the destiny of every man;
the living should take this to heart.

So we had a good time discussing issues that had eternal weight and consequence.

  • Saturday and Sunday worship gatherings were just awesome. We are in the “There’s an App for That” series. Joe spoke on the whole concept of service. We had scores of people who got on the field of service and got into play for the Kingdom. You have to watch the video of our service at You will want to serve at LifePoint.
  • Had a pre-marital counselling appointment with a couple on Sunday afternoon. Those are always good times as young couples are excited about their lives together. This couple has things pretty well figured out!

Well looking forward to this week. I preach this coming weekend. For those of you who are regular readers to “A Leader’s View” know I have planning to speak on Success. Well I’ve changed the topic. I am now speaking on the harvest. You know the harvest fields God calls us to. “Turn on your headlights” is the name of the talk. When you are involved in the harvest you work into the night to bring it in. So you turn on your headlights. Anyway, please be praying for me.

In light of that, do you have any stories of the harvest you’d like to share here? I’ll post your comments.

  1. how timely with the Women’s summer Bible study!! A very strong message over the last few weeks is that we all have been given a field to harvest. Our fields may overlap and we are not alone; but will we and how will we harvest? Much to think about. Looking forward to your sermon.

  2. Thank you Jo, Mike & Lisa for your comments! I am excited about teaching this weekend. Really looking forward to it!

  3. We are in a time of harvesting fruits and vegetables from the Grow & Give Community Garden. I am loving seeing the garden grow and it is all being given away to the community. God has so much to share if we are willing to ask and receive. So may we open our hands, hearts, and minds to an amazing God!

    • Hey James,
      So glad to hear what God is doing in the harvesting of food for the poor! You guys are the greatest!
