First, let me say what a privilege it is for me to be with you again, the congregation of Prince of Peace.
Second, I’ve been requested to give a little intro regarding the message for this Sunday, January 31. As some of you know, Ginger and I spent a month in Southeast Asia. It so happens our reading this Sunday, Luke 4:21-30, enriched our latest overseas journey into some significant insights you may find interesting. At least, I hope you’ll find interesting. I suppose the only way you’ll find out is by joining us on worship this Sunday.
Finally, in light of the above, allow me to close with this familiar quote from Mark Twain – “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.”
