Family, food, funeral

Well, the family is on their way home from Texas a day early. They should be back this evening. I stayed with Beau. Amazing dog. He was very well behaved not having Jack around. I ate at the White's home for Thanksgiving lunch. I watched a bit of the Saints beating the Cowboys, almost losing and then winning game. That was good. Today I shall do the funeral of Robert Gwin. Great man. Great smile. Great attitude. Loved his wife, grandchildren very much. What a man. Sad to have him leaving us. Every church needs cheerful and supportive people in it.

What a blessing!

It was truly a blessing to be with Presbyterians, Methodists, Nazarenes and other Baptists as we said, "Thank You" to God for all He's done for us. We had a great service at First Church tonight. Glad to be a part of such a community of faith. What a blessing it is.

Thoughts on the LBC

I'm reading this book I got at the LifeWay display at our convention. It's good.

Ok. Does it matter where you sit or was this years Louisiana Baptist Convention just that boring? I was moved by the heart of Rod Mastellar. His heart is in the right place. The others who shared, well...I did enjoy Al Mohler's Bible studies. If you go buy any of the cd's, get his. Hope they were available.

I did not feel as if the Spirit of God was really present. Was it my own cynicism?

Pray for our convention. Missions and evangelism are the heartbeats of Baptists. May they be brought to the front of all we do. Please, help that to be true by being involved in any outreach your church does. Not for the sake of Baptists, but for the sake of people without God. People matter to God–don't forget that.
