I was very pleased to have an invitation from Tim Kennedy, chaplain at McMurry University, to come to Abilene and speak to the student body and help kick off the new school year. It was a great privilege to be asked to take part in this event. One of the centerpieces of the weekend was a worship service on Sunday morning where nearly all of the UM churches in town came together to praise God and welcome the students to town. There were over a thousand people crammed into the McMurry chapel and even many sitting in overflow section. In addition to that, the service was broadcast live on local television. Tim had a great vision for this weekend and it was a powerful statement to the whole community of Abilene.
What an incredible door of ministry was opened to us at McMurry. Felicia and I were delighted to be a part of this exceptional event.
