Glad to be Disappointed in Chapel

God has blessed the Geneva chapel program with some absolutely wonderful sermons and testimonies this fall, and I say that with no reference whatsoever to my own work.  From Dr. Dan Doriani of Covenant Seminary, to Dr. Bill Edgar, Geneva's interim President, to Dr. Christopher Yuan from Moody Bible Institute, and co-author along with his mother of Out of a Far Country, _A Gay Son's Journey to God and a Broken Mother's Search for Hope - _these men have brought the chapel crowd wonderful biblical substance expressed in their own pastoral, engaging styles.  

Just as it was when I was the pastor of a local church, it's a blessing to sit under the preaching of God's Word and not to be the one standing up behind the pulpit every single week - though I did joke with the chapel crowd today that I had secretly and jealously hoped that each of these men would do a lousy job.  My ego was severely disappointed!  All three messages were great blessings to the campus family, and here's a link to Geneva's chapel sermon page .  I'll highlight Dr. Yuan's message and book as especially vital in light of the seismic social changes in our day.  His work is courageously and thoroughly biblical, and he bears experientially authentic testimony to the transformative grace and loving lordship of the living Savior, Jesus Christ.   Enjoy!
