I once again had the privilege of posting our pastor’s Monday Morning Review this week while he is on vacation. It’s a little tribute to Rahab and other mothers.
If you have a few minutes, check it out and give his blog a nice little traffic boost.

It’s not too late to enter The City Harmonic Autographed CDs giveaway, and if you share the contest on facebook, twitter or on a blog today, I’ll give you two (2) extra chances to win for each place you share this.

But wait, there’s more. The City Harmonic will also be leading worship for EFC’s two Sunday morning services (9am & 11am) that morning.
Tickets for the concert are $5 in advance, $10 at the door. Hurry up and get your tickets, this will sell out fast. Or, come worship with us Sunday morning for free. You won’t be disappointed.
Find The City Harmonic LIVE at EFC event on facebook.
Here is a short message from the EFC nursery kiddos, including The Libster who is holding the “Savior” sign.
I am a part of a men’s group that meets weekly. We sort of take turns bringing a short message each week. A good friend, Doug Crum, who is a Pastor at 4th & Elm Church of Christ in Sweetwater, TX, brought this last week. It’s funny and worth your time. Enjoy!
Top 10 Reasons People Go to Church
10. Free babysitting!
9. Everybody’s doing it.
8. Old habits are hard to break.
7. There’s nothing good on Sunday morning TV.
6. Four words: all you can eat (between prayer breakfast, Pot luck dinners & ice cream suppers, going to church is like living on a cruise ship).
5. To show off my new outfit.
4. I want to be a good person.
3. To catch up on the latest gossip.
2. I don’t want to go to hell.
1. God has showered his creation with His unconditional love and I want to respond to that gift by praising Him, learning more about Him, and by surrounding myself with people who will encourage one another in our walk with Him.
I recently taught a discipleship training class at our church entitled The Feasts of the Lord: Jesus Fulfills the Feasts. It was a three week (1x wk.) course.
I know I was blessed by and learned more from the study, preparation and teaching than anyone listening. Even so, I have an opportunity for an encore at the Sweetwater Aglow November meeting. It will be November 13, 10am-3pm at the Holiday Inn Express in Sweetwater. Lunch will be provided free of charge, and everyone is invited to attend. I hope to see you there.
One of these days, I will get around to posting about this.
If you really want to get to know God, you have to be willing to get to know a God completely different from the God you think you know.
Last year, about this time, I posted information about a mission trip to Brazil my wife was planning on taking in December (of 2009). As it happened, the trip was overbooked and the team from our church got bumped, so now they leave tomorrow.
Thank you to everyone who supported this expedition through prayer, financial contributions or otherwise. Please continue to pray over the next two weeks for the ministry team, for the Brazilians being ministered to, and for those of us left behind (the longest The Libster and I have had to go without momma is four days, so two weeks will be a stretch).
For the next three (3) Sunday nights I will be teaching a series at our church entitled The Feasts of the Lord: Jesus Fulfills the Feasts. It’s a topic that is absolutely fascinating, and I hope I am able to do it a little justice.
I believe the series will be recorded, and, if so, I will try to post the audio here. At the very least, I will try to post summaries each week.
I hope it goes well. Pray for me.
And if any of you happen to be in the Sweetwater, TX area any of the next three (3) Sundays, feel free to drop in.
