Last Sunday here

Today was my last Sunday as the Assistant Pastor of South Baptist Church. I preached for the morning service. The sermon dealt with "forgetting those things which are behind" -- looking forward to what God can do in a person's life or in a church, rather than being preocupied with the past. Since the church just celebrated its 150th anniversary a few weeks ago, I thought it apropos. Several people came to me afterward and said that the message really spoke to them.

Following the service, we had a little coffee and cake fellowship. It was bittersweet saying goodbye to the people here as we look forward to our next destination. We'll miss the people here, and many of them claim they'll miss us. Fortunately, we're close enough to popular vacation spots that there's a good chance of seeing several of them before too terribly long.
