"Clay Jars Bearing Christ"

Carol and I were in Austin last weekend and we attended the Sunday Morning 9:30AM service at Westlake Hills Presbyterian Church with Walter and Morgan (Macon's family was recuperating at home).

Peter Haas, an associate minister whom we met last year at the PGF meeting in Houston, delivered the sermon. It was very, very good. The church posts recordings of its ministers' sermons, and this one is up. Peter does a fine job of explicating the scripture in question, 2 Corin. 4: 7 - 12, and then he follows on with readings from entries in his journal that he made during a week of his ministry several years ago. Those readings moved me powerfully.

Yesterday at our Men's Breakfast downtown, Austin asked me to outline Peter's sermon, and we had a lively discussion of the scripture.
