Last evening I had the great pleasure of attending a worship service that had as one of its purposes the dedication and consecration of Dr. Ronnie Floyd as President and Chief Executive Officer of the Executive Committee of the Southern Baptist Convention.

Near the end of the Old Testament, we read the prophecies of Amos, Obadiah, and Jonah.

Ha! Now I’ve got your attention. People who know me well know that there is no chance that I’m getting a tattoo. I have my reasons, but among those is the simple fact that I do not like (Okay, it is more like a phobia) of needles. There is no way that I am ever […]
When I was kid, my dad would proudly proclaim, “We are going to labor on Labor Day.” That usually translated into using his day off to catch up on some chores that had been neglected through the summer.

I join him in issuing this call to our Louisiana Baptist churches. If you do not have someone ready to be baptized, you still have a couple of weeks. Work hard! If you still do […]
Hopefully you have heard about a call by our SBC president, J.D. Greear, to have a Baptism Sunday on September 8. What if every Southern Baptist church baptized just one on that one day? I determined a number of years ago as pastor to preach on baptism at least once a year. I used that […]
Since 1975 when I started kindergarten, every August has meant “back to school.” Every August, I have either been a student, the husband of a school teacher, the pastor of a church with a school, or the parent of a student. That is a lot of back to school prayers (and a lot of tuition). […]
