My sister’s birthday was this week. So is mine. She is 55, born 2 years and 3 days before me. I’m rarely with her on her birthday. As providence would have it, I found myself finishing a conference the day before her birthday just a few miles down the road from where she lives.So before heading back to Clearwater I made the short drive over for a visit over lunch.
Cheryl and I returned yesterday from a brief overnight visit to Houston to visit with our friends Dan and Hazel Hall. As many of you know Dan suffered an embolism three weeks ago (8-16) and has been hospitalized every since.
Great things are happening at Calvary in September. As the summer ends and the fall season begins I hope you take advantage of some great opportunities to connect and grow at Calvary.
First things…Happy August 1st! August marks the beginning of a new season of ministry at Calvary and with it I hope to engage a new habit that may prove to be a blessing to you. On the 1st of each month I want to send out a brief note to let you know what is happening around Calvary and hopefully provide a few helpful tools for your spiritual journey as well.
Dear Son, So you are ready to take a bride. In a few days you will be married.
June is the month for weddings so the next two weekends at Calvary we’re talking marriage. Whether you are married or single, I think you’ll be blessed as we talk about the importance of having and maintaining healthy relationships built on biblical principles.
Often I am asked to address our graduating class at Calvary Christian High School. Last Friday, May 24th I addressed more than 90 graduates and hundreds of family members and friends who had gathered for the glad occasion of their graduation. Some have asked for the remarks to be shared so here they are.
The numbers are now in from our X150 commitment in March and it is an amazing report to share.
How can I say “thank you”? Maybe if I say it 150 times? My heart is so full and my spirit has been so encouraged by the many stories of sacrifice, faith and generosity. I am humbled and overwhelmed with gratitude and thanksgiving.
