We who preach and write, do so in a manner different from which the Scriptures have been written. We write while we make progress. We learn something new every day. We speak as we still knock for understanding...If anyone criticizes me when I have said what is right, he does me an injustice. But I would be more angry with the one who praises me and takes what I have written for Gospel truth than I would be with the one who criticizes me unfairly. -Augustine

Company of the Committed

This weekend I will be speaking in Western NY in Batavia and on Saturday, at Letchworth State Park. For me this is an opportunity to share God’s Word and redemptive hope to a people without a Savior. It is my hope that for my brothers and sisters in Christ it will be a time as Elton Trueblood writes: “The Company of Jesus is not people streaming to a shrine (or a new church building); and it is not people making up an audience for a speaker; it is laborers engaged in the harvesting task of reaching their perplexed and seeking brethren with something so vital that, if it is received, it will change their lives.”
