Sunday Morning 3/15/09

Here is a link for the sermon audio from Sunday morning’s service.  If you would prefer a downloadable podcast format click on this link instead.

This sermon covers the text of 1 Corinthians 7.  The notes from the bulletin insert are below, although they may not be as easy to follow this week since I didn’t follow them very closely at times.  Please note, there is a section near the end that may be difficult to hear completely.  My apologies for the audio levels at that point, but it was a special situation and I left it in with permission of those who were a part of it.

I have also included a generic intro and ending message to the sermon audio.  If anyone has any input or feedback regarding the change, please feel free to leave a comment.  May God richly bless you this week.

    I think that both are blessed, if it’s Godly. If you are single and God has called you to marriage but you are being slothful in preparing for it, that’s not good. I a m speaking to myself with that one as well.

  3. Darlene,
    I am not sure if you listened to the sermon or just read the above notes that are a companion to the sermon. In the sermon, I tried to make it clear that both are indeed blessed. Good point.
