Scenes from the Weekend

The beautiful Meymandi Concert Hall in Raleigh. 

Last night's program had sort of an "otherworldly" flavor to it. 

Needless to say, Holst's The Planets was performed flawlessly. How can such a small orchestra have such a big sound? 

The audience demanded an encore -- and got one. 

My notes from this morning's excellent sermon on Eph. 1:1-6. Yes, I outline practically everything in my life. 

After church, I did an easy 7 mile run in Farmville.

While running I listened to the morning service from Stonebriar Church. Today Chuck addressed the awful problem of joylessness in the church. I've known people who have "hit the wall" -- of tight finances, intense pain, a broken marriage -- yet they've managed to convey hope and joy to all those around them. That's because their joy was not dependent on circumstances but on the Lord. That's a goal we can all strive for. 

Finally, baby #8 has arrived. Our first brown one. Love its coloring.
