Sunday Morning Sermon for 1/27/13

I am sad to report that my “record setting” sermon will not be heard on the website as I somehow managed to forget to turn on my microphone for the entire 50+ minutes I was preaching.  I have a very long, but very blank audio file to show for it.  My apologies to those who were looking forward to the latest installment in our series on our church values.  I will go ahead and post the outline notes here for those who would like to see them.  May you be richly blessed this week.

Sunday Morning Sermon for 1/20/13

We are back on track with getting sermon audio posted online.  This new site doesn’t allow me to link the way I used to do, but I found a way to post the player in the site, so I am going to try that for now.  It may show the most recent sermon at all times or it may show the one that was current when it posted.  I don’t know yet.  I will post a link to the correct sermon for you to click on here.

Notes are available to view at the new site as well.  Just click on the adobe symbol next to the player.  It should also allow you to download the audio if you want to take it with you to listen to as a podcast.  Let me know if you have any issues.  So far the feedback has been positive.

Sunday Morning Sermon for 1/13/13

Thank you to those who have patiently waited for the resumption of sermon posting.  I have had several issues crop up over the last few months since the site that previously hosted the sermon audio shut down.  Those who try to listen to older sermons will find that they are currently unavailable.  I have found a new site that hosts sermons specifically and does so for free, so I am excited to try them out.  I will try and figure out a way to play the audio here directly as I have before, but in the meantime you should follow the link below to listen on the site that hosts the audio.  Eventually, I will have notes posted there as well.  This post is a test run of the new format and site.  Please let me know if you have any problems in the comments below.  May you be richly blessed through God’s Word.

Hello Old Friends

Somehow the lyrics of this song seem appropriate to me.  I don’t really have anything new to say per se.  I found myself here at the blog thanks to a new comment on a three year old post that continues to see traffic even as I have failed to write anything new for over seven months.  I thought that since I was around, I would do a little blogkeeping and an update of sorts.

The past year has been interesting and busy.  Every so often, I have thought about sitting down and writing some more, but I seem to always find other things to do that are more pressing.  There was a time, way back when, that I had hoped to try and do three posts a day here.  I have long since become more realistic, although I might try and be so bold as to post something weekly in the coming year.  I had harbored hopes one day of gathering a host of readers who came to interact and contribute to interesting and funny discussions.  I have instead gotten to the point that I don’t even come by here every day myself.  I don’t check my stats to see how many people have been here.  Perhaps my OneWord for last year has sunk in just a little bit.  I don’t have a word for this year.  Maybe one will hit me, or maybe it won’t.  I am quite content either way and if something changes, you who are faithful readers will be among the first to know.

Since there isn’t much new to say, I suppose I will say saying any more for another post.  Until then, see ya around old friends.
