November 1, 2004

6:13 PM Talked to Josh about an hour ago. With the time change, there is now a 14 hour difference between Oak Park and Beijing. At this moment, it is now 8:13 AM in China. I called to wish Josh a happy birthday. He’s 25 today. He sounded great and I could hear the smile in his voice. 2:12 PM This email just arrived …

Your sermon really got me thinking yesterday. I have to be honest, I had decided not to vote. I have been so disgusted with all the politicians I would like to take them all out and shoot them at dawn. I have started to feel like what good is my vote going to do? They’ll just do whatever they want anyway so why bother. Our Founding Fathers would be turning over in their graves if they could see what we have done with the country

I hope this person thinks some more and then goes to the polls. I said yesterday that I hoped Calvary would be a 100% church—100% of our eligible voters actually voting tomorrow. Every vote counts. You can be sure that the people who do not accept biblical principles will be lining up early tomorrow morning. The stakes are too high for Christians to stay away. Go and vote! And take your Christian convictions with you. 2:01 PM Upcoming Events … Thursday 6:55-7 AM First Watch weekly men’s breakfast Friday 6:30 PM Oak Park ChHristian Academy Tenth Anniversary Dinner and Auction Sunday, November 14 6:30 PM Biannual Business Meeting 1:55 PM Monday shout-out to Rob Culton in Oregon, Jim and Lisa Cassioppi, Harry and Norma Koop, Pastor Juno Douglas, Pastor Larry Foster, Debbie VanSchepen, Myron and Sharon Severson in Alaska, Lori Essick, Karen Lauer, John Joslin, Doug and Shelley Wiegman, Keith Johnson, Reggie and Joan Winston, and to Nita Christopher who was in church yesterday, and to Kirk Ito who was in church a week ago.
