Preaching Odds and Ends

Bob FranquizTeaching

I had a great meeting with John our other teaching Pastor, and we finalized our preaching calendar for the first 1/2 of 2007. It’s great feeling to know where you’re going. I usually work ahead, but I was challenged to put together a calendar and I’m do glad I did.

I’ve been praying and thinking about this for the last couple of months, so it’s nice to see it all on paper. I see a nice mix of topical and exposition. I’m looking forward to our January series that will cover a couple of minor prophets (Does anyone else have a problem with that title: minor prophets?). If you get a book in the Bible, you’re major leagues in my book!

We’re ending our Spotlight series on Sunday. Studying Colossians has been great. If nothing else, I know that I’ve grown in the process. A few messages really struck some chords: Lie detector, unwrapped, and iFamily in particular. You can get all of those messages on the podcast or here.

Next Sunday we start a new series: Retro Christmas. I’ll share all the details on that next week. But I will say that this is the first Christmas series I’ve ever been excited to teach. I usually hate holiday-type series. I’ve never studied more for 3 Christmas messages than I am now.
