Kendall Harmon’s Sermon Facing into the SC Supreme Court Decision: “But if Not” (Daniel 3)

You can listen directly there and download the mp3 there. There are a few verbal slip ups which I could do without, alas, for example the reference should be Matthew 7 when I talk about the two kinds of houses. In the section on the Church in Uganda, I inadvertently fail to mention the name of Archbishop Janani Luwum and instead reference the man who had him killed. Fortunately I at least get Archbishop Luwum correct in the prayer at the end–KSH.

Blogging update

We’re back from a lovely break in the great state of Maine (hence the Acadia National Park pictures below) but tomorrow I leave for the rest of the week to go to the ACNA National Assembly in Wheaton, Illinois. Since I am unsure how much posting I will be able to do and will want to do, I am going to play it by ear–KSH.

Blog Post Frequency will go down while Taking a Break for Summer Vacation

We are headed to New England!

I have been at this blog since the first part of 2003, and it is time for a break. As I am constantly insisting to my friends, none of us is indispensable, and this is a way of living that out by yours truly. Remember I told you I am the type of person who goes to bed every night just a little sad–only a little–about how much I don’t know (and still wish to find out). So moving away from the information addiction for me will not necessarily be easy–but it is important.

I will check in from time to time, but will be posting less. Thanks for your prayers, your comments and your support–KSH.

Leaving on a Jet Plane

On a personal note, my wife Elizabeth kindly got me tickets to this Saturday’s Manchester United game (a surprise for my birthday). Since I have never been to Old Trafford, this is a big deal for me. My son Nathaniel is coming to meet me and today we fly to the UK for a little over a week. Blogging will be catch and catch can during that period–KSH.
