as many of you know my family and i went up to little rock, arkansas to preach at grace church. apparently the rumors have it that i went up there “in view of a call” (southern baptist lingo for “i’m getting my butt out of here”). i say “apparently” because i have already been asked twice since coming to the church office if this morning if i am leaving the church to go to little rock. if you were hoping that this is true then i have sad news for you – i’m not!
i went up to little rock to spend a little time with a friend, grant, and get to speak to a group of people who will think i’m an expert (rather than the moron that you know me to be). grant is doing me a favor by coming down and speaking at our discipleNOW (march 17-19) and thus i was going to do him a favor and fill in on one of his sundays for him. turns out that i didn’t even get to preach because little rock was engulfed by a huge ice storm and tons of church services were cancelled.
sorry folks but you’re stuck with me for a good while longer.
