Sunday Morning 1/30/11

We had a very busy but special day together in the Lord this week.  The Sunday service was capped off with an observance of the Lord’s Supper.  The audio may seem to have an odd ending place because I cut it before we moved to the Lord’s Supper.  The sermon is about parables and why Jesus used them to teach.  You can follow along in the notes below.  May God richly bless you through His Word.
