I have claimed the afternoon for reading. Yesterday I had finished Conversations with Jesus by Harold Fickett. I gave me several things to think about. When I had finished Fickett's text I dove into Growing an Engaged Church by Albert Winseman. This afternoon I finished up the text. It may be one of the more important books I have read in a long time. There are several principles he raised that I hope to discuss with our church family. I also began reading David Boren's A Letter to America. I plan to finish it before I head to bed. I still have four or five books I would like to finish before my "study break" finishes and I head back to work. Physical Rehab starts Monday.
I continue to be amazed by the cards, calls, visits and meals that the First Baptist family have shared as symbols of their love and support.
Grace and Peace, Tom
