Sunday Mind Dump - Sept 16, 2012 (Monday Edition)

I was carrying a burden while preaching yesterday morning.  Just before service we received a call that one of our band members, Beverly P., had been in an accident on an ATV (all terrain vehicle).  She had been in Andalusia AL on a camping trip and sustained a head injury with bleeding on the brain.  She was airlifted to Sacred Heart Hospital at 4:30 a.m. Sunday.  All the band members were hurting too.  None of knew how serious or life-threatening it was.  We could only assume the worst while praying for the best.  As soon as the music time was over, a number of our band members left for the hospital.  The whole time I was preaching I was hurting.  I finally made it to the hospital myself about 12:00 noon to see Beverly.  I was relieved to see her injuries were not as severe as I had imagined; but they were still critical.  She is in CCU right now.  Remember her in your prayers for a complete recovery with no complications.

Other than that, we had a good day at PCC.  Attendance was strong, worship was good, and I really got a kick out of the message:  Abigail & Nabal – Beauty & the Beast.  We’ll finish the message next Sunday.

When sharing these OT stores I can tell that this is the first time that a lot of people have ever heard them.  Some are literally sitting on the edge of their seats.  Very exciting.  More importantly, God’s Word is being embedded in our minds and the Spirit of God is doing a work in our hearts.  

A number of people signed up for our Newcomers Class on the first day of enrollment.  I’m hopeful that we’ll have another full class this time.

God is sending us some great people right now.  I’m very excited about the future.

Some good ministry is taking place at PCC these days – both on campus and in the community.

Really enjoyed hanging with my group last night.

Looking forward to the cooler weather that’s supped to be here mid week.  Going to get down in the 50s at night.  Perfect.

I was hoping to plant fall vegetables today, but with all the rain I may not be able to.

Ushers & Security:  There will be a meeting next Sunday immediately after service for all ushers and security, as well as anyone else who might be interested in serving.
