And to think, none of that even counts the 13 children we will dedicate to the Lord this Sunday evening as part of our day-long celebration of motherhood. We know this ceremony is not salvific in any way. But it is a glorious picture of a time when Mom and Dad commit themselves to raise their child in the nurture and admonition of our Lord.
The cameras will be flashing and the camcorders will be rolling (do digital cameras actually "roll?") as we have a blessed time in the Lord's house this Sunday night. And it will be a delight of all delights to "officially" begin my time serving as pastor to the newest members of our extended EBC family. Emmanuel, I've told you many times. My great delight is to be my wife's husband, my kids' Daddy, and a pastor to God's people.
Bring an open Bible and a warm handshake Sunday night. We are going to have a great time in Jesus along with a house full of guests!
