Yesterday was a great day for Ranae & I. The Clinton congregation surprised us with a special tribute for the 10 years I’ve served as a preacher locally. There was a neat slide show, some commentary by Patrick English, a very nice financial gift, a scrapbook, and a host of letters of encouragement from the local brethren and some area Christians who I am close with (thanks for the very kind letter, Ron!). I have been blessed with great friends and although I really wasn’t “down” in any sense of the word, I am exceedingly “high” today!
P.S. Incidentally, the “ordination service” post just caused me to think about the sort of “anniversary service” we had yesterday in Clinton. Perhaps Rom. 13:7 is the best authority for such?
