Three More Things Ken Thinks

1. I think that 1 Peter 2:9-10 summarizes the meaning of life well. It shows us that our job is to glorify God, enjoy Him forever, and share Him with others. Oh, and it goes something like this: "But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. Once you were not a people, but now you are God's people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy."

2. I don't understand why it can be so challenging for a church to grow through new conversions. Aren't the fields white for harvest?

3. I think that this post by Ray Ortlund is a good one. He says that Reformed people should be fun to be around.

Hi Ken!!

We just heard Tim Keller preach on this very passage - excellent message...a very important passage for Christians indeed!!!

How are you all? When are you coming back to visit NJ? Is Cullen as tall as I am yet (probably)

How are the dogs? Did you know that we now have 2 dogs also?

Warm hugs to everybody ~Leslie

Leslie, we are doing well and it looks like there's a chance we'll be in New Jersey soon! It depends on whether we take Cullen up to a specialist in upstate New York -- if so, we will probably take a weekend to swing through NJ.

And yes, Cullen is getting tall. He's a giant little boy, almost as tall as my friend Jeff who (sometimes :) writes on this blog as well.

You'll have to send a picture of your dogs (via email). We'd like to see them!
