I had a video that I was going to use in the introduction about Steve Gass, the inventor of Saw Stop. Trish convinced me that it was a little too intense for Sunday morning, but if you really want to see a guy put his finger into a table saw blade, here it is (truth: even I wasn’t going to show ALL of it!):

Finally, I am grateful to one church member who fact checked my illustration about William Borden, and showed me a couple of points I was wrong about. First, William Borden was not of the Borden dairies family. Those were different Bordens. Second, while Borden’s life fully exemplified the “No reserves/no retreats/no regrets” attitude, there has so far been no Bible found that actually had those words written in them. I’ve linked to two articles about Borden: the one I used as my source for the illustration, and the one that was sent to me yesterday.

I am so thankful for a church family that digs into the Scriptures and the sermon for themselves. The people of Glynwood are like the Bereans in Acts, who “received the word with eagerness and examined the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so.” (Acts 17:11) You are a joy to pastor!
