this last sunday i preached a sermon about how big our God is: the power and preeminence of God. it was a fun sermon to preach, but rather than share it here, i wanted to share another sermon that i heard given by a guy named louis giglio. i've never done this here on the blog before, and i don't expect many of you to really watch it all, but if you do, i think you'll find it worth it. i don't know much about louis giglio, and so i can't really speak to his overall theology, and i can't even say i agree with everything he says here, but the overall point about the magnificence of God, and the very cool way he makes that point, is well worth the view. there are 5 videos here which together make up the whole sermon (almost 45 minutes, in total). God is so amazing.
as some of you know, i have been working towards a goal i set at the beginning of 2020 of running 1000 miles in one calendar year. today is the last day of september (what?!?), and so that means the year is 3/4 of the way complete, which means i should be right around the 750 mile marker. however, i am doing better than that, as my 5 mile run today put me at 847 miles for the year, almost 100 miles ahead of schedule! i am feeling great, enjoying the journey, and experiencing a real sense of accomplishment as i work towards this goal. i have also enjoyed these little milestones along the way, just to see how far i've come. as it turns out, 847 miles from State College (along the roads, not as the crow flies) would have me arriving in Birmingham, AL, right about now! not too shabby! only about 150 to go!
