Time for a Baptism

A church outside of Pittsburgh, Pa owes the city $2,532,533 for a water bill. Apparently, a water pipe burst in one of the building owned by the church. The building is unused so no one noticed that 1.4 million gallons of water was leaking into the building and out from under the door. (Check out the full story here.) Even though the city recognizes that it over billed the church, the church still owes close to $10,000 in charges.

Speaking of baptisms...my church baptized almost 100 people. This was the most rockin' baptism service I have ever been to in my life! The band rocked, the people were baptized, and when they came up out of the water almost 800 people (at each service) cheered them for their decision. It was awesome.

  1. That's so cool--about the baptisms, not the church in PA.

    And I keep meaning to tell you that I love your new look.

  2. You forgot the coolest part Eric! At least at the last service, our pastor asked people to give themselves to Christ... I counted at least 30 hands that went up!!! 30 or more people in the Kingdom! THEN... after that, even more people came up to get baptized! Like 10 more that just got in fully clothed!

    GO GOD!!!!!
