My friend Dr. Pat Murray came from Dayton, Ohio to watch the LSU/Ohio State game with me. This is a pre-game lunch at a good LSU/Cajun restaurant in Birmingham, Alabama. LSU 38-Ohio State 24.... Pat and I are still friends!
At C3 church in Cleveland, NC a few of us gathered with Rick White of the Peoples Church in Frankin, TN, Greg Surratt of Seacoast, Matt Fry, Jonathan Falwell of Thomas Road Baptist Church in Lynchburg, VA, and Frank Lacey of Farmville, VA. Along with other members of the staff at Thomas Road Baptist Church we had a roundtable discussion and fellowship. Jonathan has taken over the pastorate of Thomas Road Baptist since his father, Jerry Falwell, passed away last May.
"Only God knows how much glory He can get from the hardships that we go
through. But we are learning more about his grace and faithfulness as we
walk through a great trial. Charlene shares her thoughts about a doctors
report she received in October 2007. She is strong, full of faith, and her
love for life, her family and for God is unmistakable." -Billy
To start the 2008 right I went to Massachusetts to visit David and Ginelle Payne at LifeSong Church. What a wonderful time we had. There were nearly 300 people in the service on Sunday morning and the style and quality of each component was life-giving and excellent. LifeSong is a great example of an ARC church less than two years old.
We started on Saturday with leadership training and then a time of fellowship. That evening we went to a great Italian restaurant for dinner...Mama Mia was it good food!! Sunday was great. David and Ginelle are great hosts and are doing a great job in pastoring, leading, and administering a great church. Thanks to them both for a wonderful time in Mass.
