“‘Teacher,’ said John, ‘we saw a man driving out demons in your name and we told him to stop, because he was not one of us.’ ‘Do not stop him,’ Jesus said. ‘No one who does a miracle in my name can in the next moment say anything bad about me, for whoever is not against us is for us.’”

Mark 9:38-40

Alas, no statues of the masters in action — just plaques and photos of a bunch of Russian guys looking smart.

Did you guys know St. Louis is home to the world’s largest chess piece, along with the World Chess Hall of Fame? I actually had a deposition in the adjacent building, so I stopped by and checked it out afterwards.

“Jesus answered, ‘If I tell you, you will not believe me, and if I asked you, you would not answer. But from now on, the Son of Man will be seated at the right hand of the mighty God.’ They all asked, ‘Are you then the Son of God?’ He replied, ‘You are right in saying I am.’”

“After he had said this, he went on to tell them, ‘Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep; but I am going there to wake him up.’ His disciples replied, ‘Lord, if he sleeps, he will get better.’ Jesus had been speaking of his death, but his disciples thought he meant natural sleep. So then he told them plainly, ‘Lazarus is dead, and for your sake I am glad I was not there, so that you may believe. But let us go to him.’”

“As you are going with your adversary to the magistrate, try hard to be reconciled to him on the way, or he may drag you off to the judge, and the judge turn you over to the officer, and the officer throw you into prison. I tell you, you will not get out until you have paid the last penny.”

A wonderful article about a coalition of black pastors and the issue of traditional marriage.

A related piece that also provides encouragement.

I’m headed home after an all-day deposition. I usually head for the top floor of these parking garages, because they’re usually wide open, and I’m able to park right next to the elevator.

The next FamTeam Day/Softball Classic will be held on Sunday afternoon, October 5.  The event will unfold on “FamTeam Field,” the softball diamond that sits behind the the Arndt family house in southwestern Illinois.

The first Classic was held in 1999.  As time passed, this annual event developed into something that we now call a FamTeam Day– a blend of Christian inspiration, indoor/outdoor fun, and friendship.  As simple and “down-to-earth” as these weekends are, many participants have been deeply impacted by them.

Over the years, several Cardinal baseball players (Adam Wainwright, Mike Matheny, Mike Easler, Reggie Sanders, Mark Grudzielanek, and others) have attended Classics and shared, in a heartfelt way, their love for God and commitment to Jesus Christ.

The upcoming Classic will feature the traditional softball triple-header, as the Arndt team squares off against a trio of local “all-star” clubs.  This will be followed by a fourth game,  in which our guests are invited to take the field for some fun of their own!  As usual, there will be Christian music and good food.

There will be no admission charge for the event.

If you have any questions, you are welcome to contact us!

I think Jude had a good time on our trip down to Florida!

It was a lot of fun taking those photos! Hard to believe such an effect is even possible… I think it was right around midnight when we took them.
