I will be preaching at both services tomorrow morning at McFarlin United Methodist Church in Norman, Oklahoma. In preparing for the services, I realized that I have not preached since my last Sunday as a full time pastor (which makes 68 weeks, for those of you keeping score at home). I am really looking forward to it.

I will be preaching on Mark 10:17-31 and my sermon title is “Our Precious Heritage.” The services are at 8:30 and 10:55 am.

At 7:00 pm I will be giving a lecture that will consider what was distinct about early Methodism. I will then ask if we have maintained those distinctives, and will consider whether anything is at stake in whether we have held to those distinctives or not. I am also looking forward to a lively discussion with those in attendance. The lecture is free and open to the public.
