I was struck in these services on Saturday and Sunday by the hunger for the Word that I saw and sensed in people. There seemed to be such true anticipation in minds and hearts, including the several children that were present in the services. I was reminded again of the simplicity, though not always easy, of what God calls us to do: preaching the Word and loving people in a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. This holds true in every size church in every culture and in every time.
One final thing along this same line . . . . On our way up to Sandstone, Chaili and I were privileged to stop in Eden Prairie (Minneapolis area) to see a dear friend. Dr. Norman Bloom used to be a District Superintendent of the Church of the Nazarene in Minnesota, but after that went to work at Olivet Nazarene University.
