Hopefully the weather will allow us to have a normal week! Marie and I will be in Joplin attending the annual Preaching-Teaching Conference at Ozark Christian College. We certainly thank the congregation for allowing us a conference expense budget. This is a time for us to receive spiritual nourishment. Pastors need to take in spiritual food as well as giving it out. We will leave Monday 2/18 and return ion Thursday 2/21.
Bible study on the parables will be as usual at 3:30 Wednesday wkith Jack Salyer teaching. He will be teaching on the parable and the tax collector, a parable rich with divine truth.
The sermon on Sunday will cover Acts 21-26 with special emphasis on Paul’s discussion with Herod Agrippa in Acts 26. I will be skimming over chapters 21-25 giving a brief summary of Paul’s continuing problem with the Jews and his trip to Rome.
