Sunday Morning 8/22/10

We had a wonderful time in the house of the Lord this morning.  It was a bit of a scramble and I had to cover the piano on short notice, but God is good and we made a very joyful noise over my plentiful mistakes.  The sermon this morning is from Acts 13 and is centered on the text of one of Paul’s sermons as recorded by Luke.  The notes are available below.  Simply press the play button to listen along.  May God richly bless you through His Word.
