What caps off a great Thanksgiving weekend? Getting to baptize your new niece. On Sunday (as stated in the previous post), I had the privilege of going to my brother’s church (he’s also a UM pastor), baptizing my niece Addie and preaching for him. He said that it was great to simply go to church and be husband and dad that day. I know the feeling. I hope to post the sermon sometime relatively soon.
In other news, I finally finished David Murrow’s book, Why Men Hate Going to Church. The title is a fantastic attention getter and curiosity piquer, and the content is well worth the read; an excellent dialogue partner in the area of ministry with men. When I get some thoughts together, I want to post more on that too. I’ll be interested in others’ take on the book too.
