Good morning! Here is yesterday morning’s sermon. Last night we spent recapping the Southern Baptist Convention, particularly what the parliamentary processes looked like passing resolutions. That wasn’t worth videoing. Really, it wasn’t. Want to know parliamentary processes? Get this book: A Parliamentary Guide for Church Leaders. I do not expect to ever be President of the Southern Baptist Convention, but I’m certain of this: if I’m not President of the SBC before Dr. McCarty retires from being the Chief Parliamentarian, I don’t know that I would want to be afterward.

Sermon was from Psalm 136. Audio is here or playable:



Preaching notes: (Keep in mind, this is directly from my notes which means it may not make much sense to read)

READ IT TOGETHER RESPONSIVELY
Passage:
Celebration of the Greatness of God
Context:
Shortly after the Songs of Ascent—120-134 are recognized as songs of going up to Jerusalem for the gathering of Israel—note that Psalm 119, the love of God through the law of God, immediately precedes these Psalms.
Then 135 is Psalm of Praise for God’s work which remembers some of the same events as 136
Psalm 136 then goes through those ideas as a corporate call and response, just like we have done it this morning.
Overview:
Preview
Skillful creation (v. 5) (6-9)
Exodus 10-15, wanderings 16-20
Joshua 21-22, Judges 23-24
Reflections:
Praise in Creation
SO KNOW IT!
Praise Redemption
SO KNOW IT!
Praise is commanded!
BECAUSE HIS FAITHFUL LOVE ENDURES FOREVER!
Expectations:
Thanks, Praise, Acknowledgment, OBEDIENCE!
Mission!

Book: By the Waters of Babylon

Worship. It is what the church does as we strive to honor God with our lips and our lives. And then, many churches argue about worship. I have about a half-dozen books on my shelf about worship, but adding Scott Aniol’s By the Waters of Babylon to the shelf has been excellent.

First of all, Aniol’s work is not based on solving a musical debate. While that branch of worship is often the most troublesome in the local church, By the Waters of Babylon takes a broader view. The starting point is the place of the church. That place is a parallel of Psalm 137, where the people of God, Israel, found themselves in a strange land. The people of God, again, find themselves in a strange land.
Second, in summary, the book works logically to the text of Scripture, primarily Psalm 137 but well-filled with other passages. Then it works outward from how the text addresses the problems submitted in the first chapter into how worship, specifically corporate worship, should look in the 21st century Weste…

Book Review: The Heart Mender by @andyandrews (Andy Andrews)

The Heart Mender: A Story of Second ChancesEver read a book that you just kind of wish is true?  That's my take on The Heart Mender by Andy Andrews.  It's a charming story of love and forgiveness, and it's woven into the historical setting of World War II America.  For the narrative alone, the book is worth the read, but the message it contains is well worth absorbing as well.However, let's drop back a minute.  This book was originally published under the title Island of Saints.  I read Island of Saints and enjoyed it greatly.  Now, Andrews has released it under a new title, with a few minor changes.  All of this is explained in the Author's Note at the beginning, but should be noted for purchaser's sake.  If you read Island of Saints, you're rereading when you read The Heart Mender.  Now, go ahead and reread it.  It will not hurt you one bit.Overall, the story is well-paced.  There are points where I'd like more detail, both in the history and the geog…
