A Wonderful Weekend and Sunday


My great weekend began by going to Falmouth, Kentucky, to the Wolfe-Jenkins reunion. We had somewhere around 50 people in attendance, and the food was just wonderful. I don't believe I have ever seen so much food in my life at one event.

When I left the reunion, I traveled from Falmouth, Kentucky, to Loveland, Ohio, where my son, Scott, was getting married. The wedding began at 6:00 PM. It was a lovely wedding; then he and Kathy went to Florida for a little vacation. I returned home about 8:30 PM. I was tired, but I had a busy Sunday yet to go.

I arose about 7:30 on Sunday morning and went to church. I taught my Sunday School class and then led singing at church, because my song director was at Addyston Baptist Church singing with the Blue Grass Boys quartet. I preached my sermon on The Great Commission #2 in the morning worship service.

After the morning service, I took my three grandchildren to eat a sandwich at Windy's, and then we went to Addyston Baptist Church for the 2:00 PM service. The Blue Grass Boys Quartet sang, and Bro. Darrell Sparks preached. We had a wonderful service and returned to First Baptist Church for the evening service at 6:00 PM. The Blue Grass Boys Quartet came over to First Baptist and sang for almost an hour. We had a great time singing. Most of the songs were sung as we sang them in the 1960's with my playing the piano and not singing. I did sing "Beulah Land." Then I brought my message on Hebrews 12:1-17.

After the evening service, a couple from Addyston Baptist Church took Bro. Bob Jones, his wife, Sue, and me to Frisch's for a time of food and fellowship. What a wonderful time together!

Today I am "whipped," but I still went to work and worked in the office all morning and until about 2:30 PM. I ate lunch and then picked up a few items at the store and came home. Now all I am doing is writing this blog and working on a few pictures. I am going to bed tonight EARLY.

New Series Beginning at First Baptist Church

I am beginning a new series at First Baptist Church on The Great Commission. You will find outlines as they are prepared. They will be posted on our web site at www. firstharrison.org. Click on "Sermons & Articles." One outline is already posted there. They will be in PDF format so that everyone can read them. If you do not have Adobe Acrobat Reader, you may download it free at www.adobe.com.

This series will take several weeks to complete. I am not sure how many outlines I will have, but I believe I will enjoy reading and studying for this series. This is a greatly needed series in our Baptist churches today.

Follow the series, and feel free to print or download the outlines and use them as God leads.

God bless.
