Today was a fantastic day for PCC. As I sit and reflect on this day, let me share with you some of what I experienced:

  • I had pancakes! The Macedonia mission team is raising money for their 2011 trip, and did a pancake fundraiser at the Powhatan Campus. I ate 2 before the first service...and 2 more before the 2nd one. Extra running tomorrow...but it was worth it!
  • We had great services at both campuses and all 3 services. I don't teach the kind of message I taught today very often. I really enjoyed the change and I think God did some amazing work in some lives today. The music was AWESOME and some budding new musicians got to use some of their clearly God-given gifts. It was a great day at both campuses!
  • We finished up 101 today. A big group of around 25, several people and families joined the church.
  • And, of course, whenever we do a baptism it's awesome. I didn't get the final count, but it was something like 40 people who were baptized today. As we were leaving the water, Beth said to me, "It never gets old, does it?!" I couldn't have said it better. (I did miss Angie in the water today. It's been a LONG time since I did a baptism without her...but she has a great excuse! :-) )
God is doing something phenomenal at PCC. Lives are being changed. People are being transformed. And we get to be a part of it all...Wow!

What we do matters.

For me baptism (my own and viewing others) took on an amazing richness when I read and thought about the baptism of Jesus (our example). It was perplexing to me to think of why He would be baptized. Then as I read each of the accounts the words about heaven opening and the voice of God saying "You are my son and I am pleased with you" struck me as that is what our Heavenly Father says to us when we come out of the water. He speaks to us as his child and tells us of His pleasure. All of Heaven hears those words and as does our own spirit.
