Our first men's retreat went great this past weekend. We went to Bonclarken retreat center in Flat Rock, NC. We were able to hop on board this retreat with the men from Edwards Road Baptist Church. Thanks guys! The speaker was Tom Harmon. The thing that really impressed me about him was his Scripture memory. He has memorized the book of Romans, James, Galatians and countless other verses. I've tried to memorize a verse a week since my early 20s. Tom Harmon inspired me to continue to internalize the word of God. I also enjoyed hanging out with the 20 guys from Ridgeview. My soul was refreshed and it was well worth it!

This weekend a total of 20 men and young men from Ridgeview are heading up to Bonclarken retreat center in Flat Rock, NC for a men's retreat in conjunction with Edwards Road Baptist Church. The speaker is Tom Harmon. Our own Milo Wilson will be leading worship. Milo was the interim worship leader at Edwards Road for about a year and a half. I am excited about this weekend. I am looking forward to refreshing myself spirituallly and getting to know our men better. I look forward to what God is going to do!

What a great day at Ridgeview yesterday! Blue Ridge High head football coach David Farnham did an excellent job challenging us to ready ourselves for the final Super Bowl. Thanks to Warren and LeeAnn Smith from Taylors First Baptist coming out with their grill. The burgers were awesome! Former Clemson University player Todd McClinton was a great sport in the service displaying the equipment he wore as a player. BTW, in case you weren't there, Todd put his Clemson jersey and pants on me during the service. This was probably the funniest moment I think I've ever had at Ridgeview. I appreciate Dave Yearick organizing and officiating the flag football game after church. That was a blast to watch! Why wasn't I out there? Well, I had to take pictures, of course!
