"Seeking to be a bridge of God's love to all people so they may experience His purpose for their lives." I've been preaching that, teaching that & living that for the last 3 years at Ridgeview. I had breakfast this morning sponsored by Child Evangelism Fellowship here in Greenville. They wanted to thank pastors whose churches are sponsoring Good News Clubs in the various public schools. Our church sponsors a club that meets after school on Thursday at Mountain View Elementary. That's where we meet for church on Sunday as well. We've been sponsoring a club now for 3 years. This year our coordinator is Liz Niles. She's doing an excellent job! I got word last week a young boy named Joshua placed his faith and trust in Jesus. I understand he has no church home. I am following up with him. That's a beautiful picture of the church in action. I'm so glad I get to be part of a church like Ridgeview. I thank the Lord everyday!

Some things I've read this morning. Great reminders! 1. Application is very important in communicating, especially preaching. One must think about the entire audience when applying the principle and how it applies to them. Really get specific. Don't just broadbrush- "You need to practice integrity at your job." Apply a specific example.
