The Pastor and Evangelism

This video is helpful in thinking about your pastor and evangelism.  I know many people who have been frustrated by their pastor's lack of immediate involvement in the evangelism ministry in the local church, and I think Mark Dever gives some insight into the pastor's role in evangelism and why you may not see your pastor on the front lines...

Now, that being said - we ought now to seek to take what our pastor's have equipped us with each week, and apply that to our own evangelism ministry in and outside of the church.  Much of the pastor's job is to equip YOU to do the things you wish he was doing for you.  And don't assume that if you don't see it, it isn't happening!

First Snow of 2008

It's a little after the fact, but it's been awhile since I posted here and I wanted to share these.
So there it is. :-)

It was an unexpected storm... we got about 8 inches or so. But not the damage that occurred in other ares near us. Where we used to live, a tree fell across the street and crushed 4 cars!
It was a very heavy and very wet snow...

Abby didn't care about any of that. She was absolutely thrilled to be out in it. She knew what a snowball was somehow, since even before she was dressed to go out she was yelling "snowball! snowball!" And she was throwing them at us as soon as she could get it in her hands.

A fun morning...
