In July, continued preaching through Ruth. PM messages focused on God’s Word and its impact in our lives. Heard from a friend of mine that he was leaving a comfortable ministry and going to help with church planting in New York City. Pretty encouraging story. Watched church softball games. Continued with Elders Meetings and meetings with men. Celebrated Meg’s bday. Read Disciplines of a Godly Man by Kent Hughes. Read Dallimore’s Volume 2 on Whitefield. Went to Student Life Camp in Shawnee, OK. Ben Stuart was camp pastor and Addison Road led music. Headed out for some R & R at my Mom’s and got the privilege of building a deck with a friend. Ended up being a pretty exhausting trip.
