Sunday morning Pam and I enjoyed the privilege of worshipping at First Baptist Church of Hendersonville. Jan Mulder played some beautiful Christmas music from his newly released album. I hope you were able to read the story I wrote about his outstanding music in a recent editon of the Biblical Recorder. Pastor Steve Scoggins followed with a powerful message on the centrality of Christ from Philippians 1:21. What a way to celebrate the birth of Jesus!
