No sermon this week...

I know that you will be very disappointed to hear that I will not be preaching this week. Ha ha. But this week we are blessed with a special guest preacher.

It's good practise for her... I will also be away for the next couple of Sundays as I am going on vacation for two weeks. See you all when I get back. If, in the meantime, you would like somethings to chew on you can check out the sermons found at Sermons That Work . A site filled with great things to occupy your mind and soul.
