A long weekend indeed. Starting on Friday night we spent an excellent evening with some new friends. These friends are new to Presbyterianism and very interested in covenant theology. I had the excellent opportunity to make a case for infant baptism. I hope our conversations continue in the days ahead.
On Saturday, I was glued on the Ames Straw poll and blogged live for about an hour. At 1PM I headed to Olive Garden where we had our first Ron Paul meetup group in this region. There were four of us, which is a great number for a first meet-up group in this part of the city. Ron Paul has more meet-up groups than any other candidate in the country, so it was enjoyable to discuss politics and strategies with these other three gentleman.
Later in the afternoon, we headed to Clearwater. Once we arrived we had dessert with old friends and then headed to the home of a couple that my wife and I knew from college. We talked late into the night about many topics.
On the Lord’s Day, we headed to Grace Community Church (PCA) where I preached on Joshua 6. My title was: The Liturgy of God. It was an interesting experience to find the church and see a sign that read: The Liturgy. My first response was: Where is the rest of the title? but then I thought it sounded like a Tom Clancy novel. The people were warm and receptive and I was able to deliver a 30 minute sermon, which went very well. A wonderful weekend indeed.
