A PERSONAL WORD

My purpose in starting this new ministry blog [www.vtmbottomline.blogspot.com] is to deal with some practical aspects of theology and ministry that have come to mean something to me over the years and I will eventually get there...but first a personal word if I may.
I pastored a church three minutes from SWBTS in the late seventies/early eighties and loved investing the time and energy in a ministry to a few seminary students along with the rest of the folks. Those seminary student's level of dedication and commitment astounded me. I've since pastored other churches and now travel in a church conference ministry and love it too. But...I have to say, as I've followed MANY blogs and bloggers over the past several months for obvious reasons, I have had a renewed sense of being astonished at that same level of commitment and dedication found in many of them.
I realize I would have to ask their families/churches to have the full picture,but I'm no dummy. Their words really have been a window into their hearts and my heart is encouraged for the prospects of the SBC in the years ahead as they begin to assume leadership. I'm going to try to help them...maybe by staying out of their way.;)

PAUL,
When I see these YOUNG HEARTS for the LORD, I to want to SHOUT TO THE LORD. We saw the movement in the late 60's early 70's. What has happened to the PEW sitters? The message GOD's WORD stopped being Preached. I see HEART'S for the LORD and I am Pastored by one of these YOUNG HEART'S. PRAISE THE LORD!!
