I’m in Florida at the Quad Training for The United Methodist Church

I am here, sitting in the atrium of the hotel just after lunch and wishing that I could be out on the boardwalk by the river. The sun is shining and it is beautiful. I want to be out running and feeling the wind blow through my hair. However, I have another session to attend in just a few minutes.

What am I learning? A lot!

How much of it is new? Not so much but enough.

Does any of it bother me? yes!

What bothers me? My colleagues who seem to be trashing the Bible and going with their desires, their own feelings or the current culture which surrounds us.

Do we give up? No, this is God’s church and we will stand on His Word. We will not change His Word but we will work harder to follow His Word and live by example that His way is the best way.

Is it worth being here? Yes, all that has to happen for evil to prevail is for good people to do nothing and besides it is the minority that wants to ignore scripture.

I desire your prayers.

    Thanks for all the sacrifices you make for us. Thanks for being our eyes in ears in the church. And thanks for giving the young people a voice.

    wind blow through your hair? by that do you mean leg hair? hahahahaha. i am surprised by that statement for two reasons. 1)that you typed it and 2)that no one else caught it before me.


    I am praying for you. You’re setting an example to your colleagues! show them you CAN fit in with the culture, you CAN be cool with today’s “hip kids” and you can STILL stick to HIS [original] word all at the same time! You are proof! (don’t let the cool part go to your head…hehe. jk.)

    come home safe.
