Power Outage

Just before our 10:30 service began this morning the lights in the sanctuary went out. The lights throughout the building went out. The air-conditioning went off. The screens and the sound system shut down. The power went out. We went ahead with worship, and many of those who were there reported a heightened worship experience because of the power outage. But the whole time I kept thinking about the shut-ins and those who listen in on the radio. Without power, we can’t broadcast and without power we couldn’t explain to those who would have been listening what was going on. If you speak to a shut-in this week, please let them know we’re sorry and that we missed having them worship with us. The sermon should be online soon. If you know someone who would like to listen, but doesn’t have internet access, let us know, and we’ll be happy to burn them a CD.
