Good worship this morning. I felt there was more energy and passion than last week. The first 4 songs seemed to lead everyone to the right place. Good job, Doug.
Doing a baptism is always special for me. It's a great leap and profession of faith. Good on ya', Sue.
I felt people took in the message about reaching out to others. It's not always easy to do, but it is what we are called to do and be. Great to have Doug and his family come forward to join the church. He's been a great addition. As is his family. I look forward to their arrival in Alexandria so I (we) can get to know them better.
Tonight was a carryover from this morning. I was exhausted after a 2 1/2 hour premarial counseling session, which went really well, but as worship began a gained my second wind, which is slowly dying now. We had lots of laughs tonight, but the point of Jesus is to serve, to humble yourself, don't think too much of yourself . . . God will reward you and exalt you. Although, we do need to give thanks to one another and encourage and build one another up in the love of Christ.
So, good day, long day, tiring day.
Blessings and nite - nite~
