This Sunday morning I conclude the sermon series, “Answers to Questions from the Fish House.” The response has been extremely positive. The sermon set will go on sale this next week. Many have said they want these to give to friends. Others have said the information is helpful in presenting the Gospel to their unsaved friends. I encourage you to get a set (http://tedtraylor.com/publications.htm). I plan to deliver one to the manager of the Fish House and thank him for allowing us the use of the logo. While I am there, I will order up some grits and shrimp!
Our 55+ Revival kicks off this Sunday evening, and continues each day Monday-Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. The music will be marvelous. Leo Day will lead and Greater Vision will join him on Tuesday and Wednesday. My friend, Phil Waldrep, is an expert on ministry to the “Greatest Generation.” His preaching will inspire you. Don’t miss him. You can come no matter your age; I am 52 and I plan to be at the services.
On October 2 I will attend a very important meeting of the trustees of the North American Mission Board. We are looking for a new president. I ask you to pray for the search team as they do this work. In the interim there are some vital issues for the Board to act upon. NAMB is an essential element in SBC life. Our Baptist denomination must do all we can to touch North America with the Gospel. Remember denominations do not do this work – our churches do! Our denomination is very significant in helping in this great commission endeavor. But we must never lay on the shoulder of some other organization the task that has been assigned to the local church congregation. I am happy to be a part of the SBC where churches come together to do more together than we can do on our own.
