Kairos Meeting

Today was the third Kairos team meeting as we all get together, and fellowship, pray, listen to talks, and get ready to bring the gospel into Zephyrhills Correctional on October 28 - 31.  This will be the 11th or 12th time that I've had the honor to go with these Godly men to bring the gospel to the inmates.  Over the 4 days, we will meet, and greet.  The men will listen, to 11 lay, and clergy speakers, and then discuss what the speaker said, and what they heard.  One of the men who wants to be on the team was an inmate during the weekend that I was the lay leader.  I remember him, and how he always came to the monthly reunions.  Now he wants to go back into the prison, and bring the gospel to them.  God is good!  Got to listen to a great meditation from Pastor Charles White from 1st Baptist Church of Lutz on God's parental love.  It's something if you've had children that you can relate to.

I have to admit, that I wasn't that excited about going to the meeting, but God knew where He wanted me, and now I have to admit that it was a blessing.  We also found out that our retreat center we usually use at St Leo Abbey has had some problems, and we won't be able to stay there, so we're looking at a Mennonite retreat center just a few miles north of where we normally stay.  Once again, when we thought we were going to have troubles, God came through.  The journey continues.

Interesting Stuff:

  1. Popular Mechanics debunks the Katrina myth,
  2. Phil Johnson, the 5 Historic Heresies

  3.   Heard this term "therapeutic deism" in Michael Horton's book, "Christless Christianity".  Now, it's "moralistic therapeutic deism", or watered down/secular version of Christianity.  An interesting article from CNN on our children, and their Christian beliefs.  Why Deuteronomy 6 is very important for parents to heed,
  4. Now that's a catch!!
