  • Notes from Sunday – 11/25/12
  • It was the Sunday after Thanksgiving, which is always an interesting Sunday. But it was a good day.

    I taught on 1 Timothy 2:8-15 – “Men and Women in Worship” – in my Bible Study Fellowship. I did an overview of the passage. But I plan to spend the next several weeks going through it in more detail. It’s a controversial subject. But I am looking forward to the study.

    As always, I am grateful for all the guests in worship today. It was cool to meet the family of members visiting for the holiday.

    Praise God for the two brothers we baptized today. One of the men drives to our church from Miami each week. Way cool.

    I preached from Psalm 100 – “A Psalm for Giving Thanks”

    I argued that it is your duty to give thanks to God for who he is and what he has done.

    Psalm 100 issues a twofold call to worship:

    1. Be joyful (100:1-3)
    2. Be thankful (100:4-5)

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

    The Jacksonville Jaguars defeated the Tennessee Titans, 24-19, to pick up their first home win of the year.

    So I guess Jim Harbaugh did the right thing by starting Colin Kaepernick today over Alex Smith.

    After disappointing me all season, all I asked of USC was that they take down Notre Dame. Alas, USC loss 13-22.

    So who do you think Notre Dame will play in the BCS Championship Game, Alabama or Georgia? Do you think Notre Dame can defeat whichever team wins the SEC Championship?

    Andre Berto got beat up Saturday night by Robert “the Ghost” Guerrerro Saturday night.

    Former champion Ricky Hatton was knocked-out by Manny Pacquiao in 2009. He retired afterwards. He made his return to boxing Saturday night. Well, he was knocked-out by Vyacheslav Senchenko. Afterward, he promptly retired again.

    Former boxing champ, Hector “Macho” Camacho, died from gun shot wounds. He was 50-years-old.

    How was your Sunday? How did your teams do this weekend?
