– Happy Monday friends!
– I pray you had a wonderful celebration of the resurrection of Jesus yesterday!
– We certainly did at North River Church.
– I began a new sermon series through the book of Jonah yesterday.
– If you are so inclined, you can listen to the message here.
– Even though it was a holiday weekend we still had a great time of worship and a great response.
– Oftentimes, pastors can get discouraged on holiday weekends because of low church attendance.
– However, vacations are important for both the pastor and his people.
– Everyone needs an opportunity to break away from normal life and rest for a bit.
– Rest is good and rest is godly.
– Ultimately, we find true rest in Jesus.
– Vacation is not a time to rest from Jesus but in Jesus.
– Last week I did a bit of redesign work on my website.
– I cleaned up the look a bit and changed the name of the site.
– I also began reading a new book over the weekend called 12 Ways Your Phone Is Changing You by Tony Reinke.
– It is rocking my world.
– Tony’s research and biblical insight is fantastic.
– You need to read this book!
– Tomorrow is July 4th – Happy Independence Day!
– I’m looking forward to a slower day with family and friends.
– We are blessed to live in the USA.
– Enjoy your Monday!
