One of THOSE days
But what we really loved about Warner was his unashamed witness of Jesus Christ. He did not hide his confession of faith in Christ Jesus under a basket. No, he let the light of Jesus shine, whether it be on the football field or in church or wherever he was. My dear, sweet wife and I briefly met Kurt and his wife, Brenda, at Celebrity Fight Night a few years ago. They were both gracious and kind. So, we really rejoice for Warner and his family.
This afternoon I will be preaching at a Memorial Service for a long time friend and her family. They mourn the loss of their 17 year old son. We expect to see friends that we haven't had the opportunity to connect with for years. So it will be a bittersweet day for us. But I'm looking forward to proclaiming the comfort of Jesus Christ to this family and to reassure them that Jesus has overcome sin, death and the grave.
Otherwise, we'll have our Saturday service at 5 pm, as usual. Sunday worship is at 8 and 11 am and my message is entitled, "Jesus is Our Hope." Communion will be celebrated at the early service. Bible classes for all ages meets and 9:30 am. Come and join us this weekend at Life in Christ!
