The Day Before

Well…today, we come back from Pepperdine. I’m really…really sick (flu/brochitis). Em is sick too…so, we’re praying that the Lord grants us some renewed health by tomorrow. This year’s Pepperdine Lectures were great.

Sermon of the week goes to David Fleer.

Quote of the week: "There’s only one good translation for that word… HOES!" – Dan Rodriguez

The "awwwwww" moment of the week went to Andy Benton for his video tribute to Jerry Rushford’s 25 years of planning the Bible lectures. This was followed by a brief walk down memory lane from Jerry Rushford. This made the night altogether special.

More on Pepperdine after tomorrow, when we reopen the auditorium which is about 85% finished. We’re missing the stone work, and the cafe wasn’t finished enough to get a TOV. But…we should be 100% on or close to Mother’s Day. I couldn’t be prouder of how the church has handled the transition. God is good.
