One of the advantages of currently not preaching weekly is that Loretta and I got to go to Seattle (actually Duvall, but nobody’s ever heard of Duvall, WA…) to hear our son Ryan preach. Ryan is actually the worship pastor of The Duvall Church, but since his preaching minister was between series, Ryan got to preach. I have never heard him preach in that context, and it actually has been several years since I’ve gotten to hear him preach, so we spontaneously decided to venture up north (about 4 hours) and surprise Ryan and hear/support him preach.
The only problem was that both Loretta and I were convicted by what he said! He preached on “Loving your enemies”…actually the title was “The Economy of Mercy”
