    54 degrees, cold and all alone in COVID-19 2020,  BUT here is a sermon from 2009 (I think) on the text we would have covered.  Hard to realize Savannah is finishing her Frosh year at Clemson now (was drawing pictures of cats then) and Reece is turning 11 (was learning to walk that week!).  Miss you all very much, whether students or alums!

  • Worry! Dont Be Happy.

    Worry! Don't Be Happy.

    05/04/2020 Duration: 43min

    A replay from 10+ years ago since the COVID-19 has cancelled our semester and ability to meet.  What a beautiful day today was!  I wish we could have met, BBQ'd and Fellowshipped together.  Sad we cannot, but God's will be done, because it is always good!  Even when (especially when) we can't see it!

  • How to Live a Worthless, Reckless, Powerless Christian Life (Hosea 7)

    How to Live a Worthless, Reckless, Powerless Christian Life (Hosea 7)

    Lessons from "Flat Cakes, Dumb Birds and Slack Bows" about the Christian life from Hosea 7.  This is a replay from 10 years ago due to the COVID-19 cancellation of the semester and inability to meet with students.  Go for a walk and listen as you keep up with Hosea!  The early reference to Mario and family is who you think it is.  Yep, he came out from ARA Mark work on campus and brought a portable clay oven to bake us some flat cake (pita) bread to go with our dinner.  It helped to illustrate one of Hosea's points about Israel in Chapter 7!

    With COVID-19 cancelling the semester, I am going to attempt to post something from present or past, in an effort to conclude this series.  We miss Sunday nights at the Barn, we miss students and we miss RUF!  May the Lord end this virus quickly and may the Lord continue RUF at Erskine into the future!

    Spring Cookouts are Back!  We hosted NC State RUF (who was here for the Widows' Ministry and as our students drove back from Spring Break) with a tailgate cookout of burgers, veggie burgers, hot dogs, sausages and pork loin.  Then, we played  kickball on the Barn field.

    85+ on a 90 degree hot (but beautiful) Barn that included 5 from Lander and 5 from Anderson.  A hard topic for a first time visitor to the Barn!  But, since this is the point of so much pain for so many people, it would be irresponsible to not speak to and apply the Gospel to it.

    Tornado Watch!  So the Barn-K was canceled due to the threat of Tornado, but we through together a 7PM Barn with dessert and our music, Bible study conclusion of our series, and to hang the Horseshoe anyway!  Sad and anticlimactic finish to the year, but a  good one still!  Thankful to have several alumni there and more people than I expected!

    Chilly Spring night for Barnadillas and an important talk on The Good News of Adoption as we turn the busy corner and hit the home stretch of the Semester.  2 More large groups, 3 more small groups, a Pig Jig, Barn-K and Low-Country Boil before Baccalaureate and Graduation, leading into Edisto Beach Week.  Much to do, but it is all good stuff!
