Sunday Morning 10/24/10

We had a wonderful time in the Lord this week.  My back pain cleared up enough to allow me to stand and preach the Word, which is an answered prayer and a blessing.  The message may sound a little muffled this week as it appears that the mic fell into my jacket at some point.  The audio is still understandable, so here it is.  Notes are below as well.  May God richly bless you through His Word.
