Sunday Morning 9/20/09

We had a great service and time of worship Sunday morning.  This is the first time I have ever preached on my birthday as far as I can remember.  It was a lot of fun and Amelia managed to surprise me afterward with lunch at the church.  You can hear the announcement on the end of the sermon after one of our deacons mentioned it earlier to let the cat out of the bag.  The audio link is below as well as the notes for the sermon.  It is still in the theme of the Feast of Trumpets celebration and imagery.  May God bless you this week.
