When the wind blows the rain sideways and people still remain faithful to the picnic, something special is going on. When is the pastor as much a cheerleader and encourager as he is a shepherd? Or maybe these all fit the job description! Join me in this 26th episode as we talk about soggy picnics and high spirits. Also we kick off our 40 Days In The Word campaign this week!

Here's what I have lined up for you in this week's edition of the podcast:
[0:00] Intro - I talk about this past week getting prepped for the 40 Days in the Word campaign and the Fall Fun Picnic.
[16:17] Rainy Picnic Highlights - I describe the soggy day and sunny spirits. I interview many of the folks there. When is a pastor more of a cheerleader?
[36:46] Faith Like A Child - Speaking of having so many children at Church Requel, what do we learn about the faith of kids? Jesus told us that we must have the faith of a child or we'd never see Heaven. What did he mean? Thanks to Joe Farnello at SermonCentral.com.
[50:15] The Rule of Life - Last week we finished question #1 of the Westminster Confession of Faith. The chief end of man is the give glory to God and enjoy Him forever. But how do we do that? Is there a rule of life... a guidebook? Based on Westminster Shorter Catechism by G. I. Williamson.
[1:01:55] CR Sermon: "How To Build My Life On The Bible" - This is the kick-off sermon for the 40 Days in the Word campaign, orginally written and delivered by Rick Warren to Saddleback Community Church in January 2012. We learn 5 ways to build our life on the solid foundation of God's Word.
Music for this week's podcast is "Bring The Rain" by Mercy Me.
