Susan and I are worshiping today at Warren Woods Baptist Church in Warren where our son, David is the new worship pastor. He is enjoying the ministry – busy and very involved.
Once again, we can’t thank you enough for your prayers and support. In my absence, Eric Perkins is preaching. I know the pulpit is in capable hands. Listen well as he serves to you the Bread of Life. We will resume our series in Luke’s Gospel next Sunday, dv.
I took some necessary vacation time this past week. Sue and I did some chores around the house that have been begging to be finished and then we enjoyed several days at Gull Lake Christian Conference Center – reading, relaxing, exercising, talking. Friday and yesterday we spoke at Grace Life Baptist Church over near Port Huron for a marriage conference. And since we were over in that area we decided to take a vacation Sunday to see David in action.
Someone told Vance Havner, the old mid-20th century southern evangelist, “Satan never takes a vacation.” Havner, known for his wit responded, “I’m not modeling myself after Satan. I’m following the Lord Jesus who said to his disciples to come apart and rest awhile.” We all need to take some time off. I always encourage others to utilize their vacation time. We need those days to unwind and unplug to become refreshed so we’re energized. Thanks for giving me these days to do just that – and thanks too for your prayers.
