With the holiday, you may have missed some posts, so here’s a recap of the week’s posts so you can catch up.

Tomorrow, I’m preaching for the Skyview Church, where we worked and worshiped back in the 80s. Continue reading

Weekly Recap: November 14-19

Good morning from Indian Shores Beach

For the 4th consecutive year, in what is quickly becoming a Thanksgiving tradition, our kids and grandkids are gathering here for some R & R as we make memories and enjoy the holiday together.

Next week, we intend to publish our last post for the week on Wednesday and take off the next few days.  Although I will probably reblog some past posts on those off days. Continue reading

Weekly Recap: November 7-12

Good morning from Beverly Hills

We have received many complimentary words of encouragement regarding our posts during the past week.  Some from long-time readers, others from those who are newer subscribers.  One that was especially personal and touching. One friend wrote that he didn’t read our Sunday post until later in the day and wished he’d read it before church because it contained the perfect ending for his sermon that day. Well, maybe he can use it another time.

Thanks to all of you for your continued support of our efforts. Continue reading

Weekly Recap: October 31-November 5

Good morning from Beverly Hills, Florida

Today is the day.  Don’t forget to set your clocks back tonight 1 hour.

It’s also the day that it really feels like Fall weather in Florida with a projected high of only 57 (For some that would be considered winter weather). But we’re entering a very pleasant 3 month period weather-wise.  That’s why we attract “snowbirds” this time of year.  If you’re in our area (Citrus County) let us know. And if you’re looking for a place to worship, let me recommend the West Citrus Church, where I will be preaching the next two Sundays. Continue reading

Weekly Recap: October 24-29

Good morning from Cobbly Nob, Tennessee.

Norma Jean and I are quickly coming to an end of our stay in the Smoky Mountains. It has been another wonderful, relaxing, and also exhilarating time enjoying God’s creation and the Fall foliage as the colors become more brilliant each day.

It has also been wonderful to be with the brethren at the Cosby Church and to enjoy time with our good friends Olie and Mary Williamson and James and Cheryll Witherington.  Also, we’ve seen friends and former classmates, visiting the Smokies, who we haven’t seen in years. Continue reading

Weekly Recap: October 17-22

Good morning from the Great Smoky Mountains,

One of the things I wanted to do when I stepped away from “full time, located preaching,” 3 1/2 years ago was spend a couple weeks in the Fall in the mountains.  Except for our honeymoon here 53 years ago, we’ve never had the time to come for more than 2-3  days at a time.

We’ve been blessed that this is 4th consecutive year to be here the last two weeks of October.  But an even greater blessing is the connection we’ve made with the brethren at the Cosby church of Christ and their preacher Olie Williamson and his sweet wife, Mary.  They are lovely folks.  Kind. Compassionate. And just the “salt of the earth” kind of people. Continue reading

Weekly Recap: October 10-15

Good morning from Beverly Hills, Florida,

It’s been a crazy week with both computer issues and car repairs.  But somehow we’ve managed to post every day.

Hopefully, both issues are now resolved since we’re leaving tomorrow afternoon for The Great Smoky Mountains.  Yes, “the mountains are calling.”

Tomorrow morning, I’m preaching at the West Citrus Church in Crystal River on the topic “Forgive Yourself.”  Then the next two Sundays, I will be preaching in Cosby, Tennessee. Continue reading

Weekly Recap: October 3-8

Good Morning from Beverly Hills, Florida

We enjoyed a wonderful week with the East Shelby Church in Collierville, TN.  The brethren were engaged, receptive and very hospitable. If they were as edified as Norma Jean and I were, then it was definitely a mutually beneficial week.

Weekly Recap: September 26-October 1

Good Morning from Beverly Hills, Florida

“Are you still traveling?’ I’m occasionally asked.

The answer is  “Not full-time, but, yes, as we have the opportunity.”

October offers several opportunities and finds us away from home for about 2/3 of the month.  We’re leaving today for Memphis, Tennesse, where I began a meeting tomorrow with the East Shelby Church in Collierville. The theme is “Christianity 101:  Bible Basics for the 21st Century.”  If you’re in driving distance, we’d love to see ya’ Continue reading

Weekly Recap: September 19-24

Good Morning from Citrus County, Florida

Well, Fall has arrived in Florida. Sorta.  We’re waking up to 66 degrees. With predicted temperatures “only” mid to upper 80’s.  Give us another month or so, and it will be pretty sweet.

Tomorrow AM I’m teaching the adult class and preaching for the West Citrus Church, where we’re members.  Wednesday night we will be at the Brooksville Church closing out their summer lecture series with the topic, “God is Love.”  Then getting ready for a meeting at the East Shelby Church in Collierville, Tennesse, beginning next Sunday.  So, it’s a busy week ahead.
