More Weekend Thoughts July 21, 2008 by Gilbert Leave a Comment Saturday morning I had an appointment at the church and was thinking about everything but driving. When I got the light at Rosalies Restaurant I looked up and noticed a cop sitting behind me. Better be careful I thought…then I thought…hmmm, wonder how long he’s been behind me…because I really haven’t been paying attention. Didn’t take too long to find out the answer as the lights came on. Yep for the first time in about 10 years I was about to get a speeding ticket. He was very nice, told me that he’d get me my ticket and get me back on the road ASAP. But then he stopped and started asking questions…if you don’t think I played the “I’m the pastor of the church just up the street card” then your crazy. When he came back, he said, “I’m going to trust that you’ll slow down so I’m not giving you a ticket today.” Yeah God! Forgot to mention yesterday that our old church building has now officially been sold and closed on! This weekend I’ll have Sam Kauffman our Council President fill you in on some more of the details in case your interested. Last night’s 720 Prayer Gathering with all the churches in the area was great! God held off the rain which was a miracle in and of itself. Did any of the rest of you notice that when it was really dark and threatening that when Earl got up to pray the sun came out but went right back in afterwards….just saying 🙂 All in all, not a bad event. From a technology standpoint it was not all that good, but the heart behind it was unity and prayer and that came through loud and clear and God I believe was pleased.
