celebrate Jesus Son of God


“No one who drinks the old wine seems to want the new wine. ‘The old is just fine,’ they say.”

~Luke 5:39, NLT


“If you really want to do something, you will find a way. If you don’t, you will find an excuse.”

What are the famous last words of a Baptist? I have heard two versions: one is “I shall not be moved.” I’ve seen many a Baptist who are indeed unmovable. Another one goes like this, “We’ve never did it this way before.” Why are we afraid to try new things? Don’t get addicted to the old wine; be willing to try the new. A rut is a grave with the ends knocked out. Get out of your routine and do something different. It is a challenge for all of us because we are all creatures of habit.


  • Deacon’s meeting at 8:00, LCBS at 9:00 and worship Celebration at 10:15.
  • I was out visiting yesterday evening and munching on party mix between stops when all of a sudden, what a appeared to be a small rock fell out of my mouth. It was a filling, a huge one. It looks like a meteor.
  • Well, we have folks all over creation again today. I do not know how people come up with the money to go somewhere every weekend. When I was a kid, there was no ball and no travel: there was a cotton patch Monday through Saturday and so we looked forward to Sunday and a day of rest. We did play a little ball on Sunday evening after I got older and mother allowed. She mellowed out a little, even let us go swimming on Sunday. Things have changed and not all for the better.
