SBC 2009 day 1

I'm at the Southern Baptist Convention this week. We've had a wonderful trip thus far. Spent the first night on the rode in Wheeling , WV and them stopped by the petting zoo at the Creation Museum to see their new Zonkey and Zorse, on our way to Paris, Paris , KY that is. The kids enjoyed the zoo (as did the adults). My littlest got to feed and pet a Wallaby joey. Crash was the only one the pig would talk to. We stopped in Georgetown for the night continued on to Paris Sunday morning to Worship with Grace Alone Baptist Church. Brother Brown is pastor of a small family integrated church. He was preaching out of Philippians 1:19-21 and he can preach. Needless to say, we had a wonderful time of worship with them, then we fellowshiped over lunch and were off to Louisville. I have already seen a couple of old friends and am looking forward to seeing more of them.

Missed JD Greear's sermon. I really wanted to hear him. Mac Brunson challenged Southern Baptists to strive for greater harmony and to quit bickering and posturing over issues that we disagree on that need not divide us so that we will quit denying our witness to the world. They will know we have been with Him by the love we have for one another. The evening was brought to a close by Chuck Colson who challenging pastors to prepare their flocks for the upcoming persecutions teaching the faith clearly and its implications for our lives.

I look forward to what is in store for us today.
