Sunday Morning Sermon for 7/29/12

We participated in a community service in the Legion Park here in Langdon on 7/22 so there is no sermon file for that Sunday.  This Sunday we are back to our normal services.  We shared in the Lord’s Supper this Sunday as well, but I have cut that audio from the service.  Notes are below.  One further note, the first couple of minutes of the audio are a little loud and I tried to tone them down.  I had a problem with the mic that got more or less corrected about 2-3 minutes in to the message.
