Speaking @ Antioch in Omaha

I have returned to the scene of the crime (Don't ask. I will not explain. But if you get do it... pretty funny, huh?).

I am in Omaha to preach for Pastor Reginald Terry at the Antioch Baptist Church. And I am having a blast. I really felt at home preaching to Antioch last night. Reginald Terry is an outstanding preacher and Bible teacher. And it's always good to be in a setting where the preaching of the word of God is the center-piece of the worship service - not an appendix added after a hundred non-essential things take place.

I am also enjoying the time I have spent with Pastor Terry. He bleeds preaching. He has a pastor's heart. And he has a sharp mind. And our conversations about pastoral ministry and biblical preaching have been stimulating. Even when we disagree, the conversations are still engaging and enjoyable. I have a lot of respect for Pastor Terry and find myself refreshed by this trip, which is a pleasant surprise.

Please remember the remainder of this meeting in your prayers.
