    There was a ministry fair after both services today. Ministry leaders answered questions. Members signed-up to serve. Way cool.

    I am grateful to God for all the volunteers of our congregation. You make it happen!

    We did not have Bible Study Fellowship groups today, to give members the opportunity to browse ministry displays today.

    As always, I was glad to have our guests in worship today, including the New Stanton High School class of 1977.

    Praise God for the two who were baptized today.

    I preached on “The Good Samaritan” from Luke 10:25-37.

    Two questions drive the discussion of this text: (1) What shall I do to inherit eternal life?” (v. 25) and (2) “And who is my neighbor?” (v. 29)

    I did not use an obvious sermon outline today. There is so much drama in the text. I just trying to faithfully recreate the text in a create way.

    I had a long weekend. Did not think I would be ready to preach the Good Samaritan this morning. The Lord really helped me to finish my preparations.

    Praise God for those who were added to the church today.

    Next Sunday, I plan to resume my Family Matters series with a message on cohabitation called, “Live-In Love.”

    After church…

    The Miami Heat won their tenth straight game last night. And LeBron James – on his way to another MVP – had a messed around and got a triple double.

    I don’t see any team that can stop the Heat from winning it all again!

    The Lakers topped the Mavericks this afternoon to win its third straight game. Do you think Kobe and company will make the playoffs?

    I will not watch the Oscars. But I am curious to hear who wins the hotly contested award races this year.
