Senate Prayer

Traveled to Austin last Thursday to pray at the opening of the 31st day of the 80th session of the Texas State Senate. Kim's mother, Frankye, went with me, and the Senate recognized her with a resolution for her 80th birthday as a "treasured citizen of Texas," and they gave her the flag that flew over the capitol on her birthday. Terry Franks, Legislative Director for Senator Patrick was our contact for the day. His wife Jenny, serves on Dan Flynn's staff. Now you're getting the picture...

If you want to see what I prayed, which only I remembered, go here. I was the guest of Senator Dan Patrick of Houston. He's the radio talk show host who surprised everyone with a landslide victory last year. He also wrote a book titled, The Second Most Important Book You'll Ever Read, on how to read the Bible. Pretty good.

I saw our own Senator,Florence Shaprio, who has been a friend to Legacy Church since she was Mayor of Plano and Kip Averitt, we were at Baylor together…

Biblical Interpretation Course

I'm teaching for B. H. Carroll Theological Institute again. They were accredited this year, and I am pleased to be part of the faculty, which include pastors with terminal degrees and teaching ministries along with their pastoral duties. I love it because Legacy Church is a Teaching Church, and I get to integrate my studies into the life of our people.

This term (Omega, April 9-June 2, Mondays 6-8:30 p.m. at Legacy Church) I will teach Biblical Interpretation, an introduction to the art and science of understanding the author, text and readers of Scripture. I am pleased that several of our LifeGroup leaders will participate in the class. Students will choose a passage at our first class meeting and apply the principles of interpretation each week in order to produce a interpretation project at the end of the term. Should be hands-on fun! Okay, a 50k may be more "fun," but that term is relative for all of us.
