Moving And Worship

Today is moving day again.  And still, we don’t know anyone who is preparing a travel day meal for us.  That just ain’t right.  The move today is three times further than our move last Sunday.  This time it’s down the street about five sites before we find ours.  This one will really challenge the old backing skills as there are two trees that are right in the way.  One has to negotiate around them in order to land the coach in just the right spot.  It will require some backing back and forth to get squeezed into the site.  And no travel day meal!!!

We’ll move first and then attend the COTES-ACC for worship.  It’s nice to see our friends from the past at Stutsmanville Chapel, however, we miss our home church in Fairhope.  Being that we have to move this morning we’ll only have time to attend worship via the air waves.  You can join us at 10:00 EST at the Church On The Eastern Shore.

Speaking of worship, I’ve been enjoying reading out of the New Living Translation (NLT) Bible.  It’s a nice change of pace although my favorite version, by far, is the New American Standard Bible (NASB).  I, also, enjoy the New International Version (NIV) as well.  Judy reads and studies in the NASB almost exclusively. 

Now, I’m going against some of our Fundamentalists brothers and sisters who claim “King James Version only”, but in order to better understand what you’re reading I feel that the NIV is better suited for today’s Christians.  You can try out all the various versions by going to Bible Gateway and reading on line.  You can even compare them by using their “add parallel” feature to read different versions side by side.

Anyhow, it’s Sunday and if it’s Sunday, it must be worship (football doesn’t count as worship, guys).  So we want to give the Lord at least a couple hours of our attention.  We should give him the whole day; that’s why we spend some time each day with the Lord in reading, meditating, and praying in His Word.  Oops, I’ve done gone and gotten too preachy.  But, the title says what today is all about – moving and worship, but no travel day meal.

Now, may God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace.  (I Cor. 1:3)
