As Kristie and I begin this journey, I'm struck by what an amazing team we have, how willing everyone is to do whatever is necessary to make the weekends a success. I deeply long to serve Him and to do whatever is necessary to honor his will, to put myself aside, my selfish ambition, and my strong tendency to eagerly grab control and do things "my way". I ask each and every one of you to please hold me to that standard. #29 is not "Jim's" is the weekend where I get to deliver the openeing and closing remarks, but the reality is that it's your weekend...and it's HIS weekend. Pray for me, a sinner.

"For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit." -- Romans 8:3
