We celebrated my birthday at Red Robin.
We finished a series called “Suffering and the Sovereignty of God” by R.C. Sproul, Jr. in the adult Sunday School class. I recommend the book and DVD, available at Ligonier Ministries.
We attended Portland Christian Center’s Christmas musical for the first time, and absolutely loved it! If you get the chance, make sure you go.
We enjoyed a family dinner, celebrating birthdays, at Little Italy in Vancouver and had our “usual” table.
We went caroling after our Life Group’s Christmas potluck. It was somewhat spontaneous on our part, but completely orchestrated by God!
We celebrated the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ at a Christmas Eve service at Cross Creek Bible Church. The Seasonal Choir was outstanding (even though I’m part of it I think I can still make that statement), as were the four people who put on a skit that ran throughout the service.
We enjoyed time with both of our families on Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
I continued preaching through the Gospel of John (we’re up to chapter 3, verse 15). I’m amazed, even though I shouldn’t be, at the simultaneous simplicity and depth of John’s Gospel!
I finished reading through the Bible (the New American Standard Bible) in one year. I hadn’t done it for several years, and am extremely glad I did it in 2014. It was easier than I remember (about 15 minutes per day). For those interested, I plan to do it again in 2015 – Lord willing!
