Speaking of God

Our family talks a lot at meals. Sometimes we even talk to each other.

I like to watch and listen as the conversation jumps from one topic to another and as three conversations happen all at once. One of my girls sometimes carries on a conversation with herself.

Occasionally I attempt to get a word in. My comment or story often has nothing to do with the current subject(s). I just want to say what’s on my mind. So if, for example, I want to share our puppy’s latest entertaining antic, I’ll interject, “Speaking of the dog…” Someone will almost always observe, “We weren’t talking about the dog,” which is my cue to point out, “We are now!” and tell my Hobo story.

In a similar way, I want to get a word in and share my stories – about God. What I post here will be my way to join (interrupt) the conversation and convey what is on my mind about the magnificence of God, the wonders of Jesus Christ, His gifts to us, and our life in Him.

The primary discussion circle is our church family, but others are welcome. The content will be directly related to the Old and New Testament Scriptures, and usually associated with texts I am currently preaching. It will occasionally include other ideas and issues catching my attention or gripping my heart. There will be links and resources that will help you further explore and contemplate what we talk about in Sunday’s sermons. Various thought, discussion, and application facilitators will be added as we develop the site.

If you want to join the conversation, comments are welcome. Your interaction with others is a form of fellowship. Enjoy sharing the blessings of the Word with one another. All of the biblical precepts for constructive and gracious communication apply. I may jump in occasionally.

So, “blah, blah, blah… yada, yada, yada… didja hear… didja know… what’s up with that… type… text… talk… twitter…”

(Ahem) Speaking of God…

“We weren’t talking about God.”

We are now!

  1. Wow! This is great Pastor. I think this will be a help and blessing to lots of folks. Can’t wait to check back in and read all of the entries and posts. I will add this to my arsenal of ways to stay on track during the week.

  2. This will be a great way to continue to meditate on the sermons and passages we hear on Sunday! I am excited to read and learn more though this blog.

  3. I am looking forward to being able to meditate on the sermons again. Often when you take notes you miss something. Thanks so much for taking the time to do it.

  4. This is just what I have been looking for. A great tool to reinforce the truths we receive from God’s Word each week. Thank you so much.

  5. This is going to be great to further my understanding of God’s word in such a way I will be able to relate to more and have time to think about or meditate on.
    Thanks Pastor Taylor for bring this to us..

  6. This is wonderful! Thank you Paster Taylor for taking the time to do this and oh yes, speaking of God, thank you Lord amen.

  7. Thank you Pastor Taylor for giving us something to encourage us during these days of uncertainty.

  8. Brother Taylor, I received a Sanza Fuse for Christmas. When I discovered how easily I could download your messaages from Sermon Audio and concentrate on them again on my mp3 player I realized what a real blessing it is. Now this site adds even more. In business this is called a Value Added Service. I am so looking forward to growing as a result.

  9. Here’s a thought for the current Sunday Night series:
    THE HISTORY AND VALIDITY OF CURRENT MANUSCRIPTS OF THE WRITTEN WORD OF GOD, quite a mouthful, could work. Or maybe, THE SCRIPTURES – THEIR VALIDITY AND HISTORY, would be another option.
