Showers of Blessing

Good Morning,

It has been a while since we have had a rainy day and a Monday. We are thankful for these much-needed showers of blessing. As I write this morning, I am in Jackson preparing for the Mississippi Baptist Convention, which begins in the morning. Please pray today for Dr. Jim Futral, our executive director, and for Dr. Matt Buckles, our convention president. Pray for all who will be leading in worship and all who will be conducting the business of the convention. How thankful we are for Mississippi Baptists and for the opportunity to gather for this special event.
On Tuesday evening BMC ministerial alumni will gather for their annual convention dinner at 5:00 in the Christian Life Center at FBC. Marc Hoover will share a message from God's Word, and I will have an opportunity to share an update on the college.
Wednesday at 9:20 I will give this year's college report to the full convention. My focus will be on our celebration of 60 years of ministerial education at BMC. Please pray specifically for this special presentation. May we appropriately express our gratitude for the privilege that is ours of serving in this capacity and may God receive the glory.
Back on the home front, Jennifer Brock Marshall will share in chapel today. She is the author of Out Came the Son. On Wednesday students can "choose a chapel"; on Friday they will complete the Student Satisfaction Survey.
Let's hope for a break from the rain for this afternoon's trip to the Pumpkin Patch at 5:30.
I encourage everyone to make plans to attend tomorrow evening's Fall Chorale Concert at 7:00 in the Modena Lowrey Berry auditorium. You will most certainly enjoy a wonderful evening filled with beautiful music.
On Friday tickets will go on sale for the spring scholarship gala with Tim Tebow. Students, faculty, and staff will have an opportunity to receive tickets at a discounted rate. I will provide more information on how to obtain these tickets later this week.
Blessings to all for a great week!
