1 Tim 1:12-17--"Paul's life and ours"

On Sunday I preached at Community Church of Appleton on 1 Tim 1:12-17. The sermon was entitled "Paul's Life and Ours." Here is a brief description:

We all have the seeds within us to do the most brutal and sinful acts. Only Christ working in us can transform our lives from the inside out. He transforms us in a fundamental way because our lives are not just about ourselves. As we apply this transformation, we become more like Christ so that, by God's grace, people will see something of Him when they see us.

Both the audio and a PDF of the message are available on the "sermons" page of the ECLEA website: http://www.eclea.net/sermons.html

Return from East Africa + auto accident

I recently returned from Burundi and Uganda. Updates of that trip are on the "News" page of the ECLEA website (http://www.eclea.net/news.html).

Today I received an email from Michael Taari, ECLEA's coastal region coordinator in Kenya. Here is what he said:

"As I was travelling back to Nairobi from our annual conference in Voi I was involved in a car accident with my wife but we were able to come out alive. I got some injuries on my head and back. I have been at home now for two weeks without doing anything but I am trusting God that I will be well soon. Next week on Thursday we have our ECLEA conference at Voi. The people are waiting for us and I believe all will be well."

God bless you, Michael. We hold you up in our prayers.
