Community Thanksgiving Service

Today we attended Temple Baptist Church in White House, Tennessee. White House is located about 20 miles north of Nashville and about 35 miles south of Bowling Green, KY. It is just off of I65. Temple is a growing church that seems to be seeking God as a church body. This was the first week that Cavin hasn't preached since leaving The Church on the Circle. I think it was somewhat of a difficult day for him because he truly loves to preach and proclaim God's word. There have only been three Sundays that he has not preached all year.

Tonight Temple hosted the community Thanksgiving service for 10 churches. The church was filled to capacity which was a wonderful sight. They had to bring extra chairs in to seat everyone. Several pastors spoke. An African American pastor spoke early in the service and did an outstanding job. I wanted him to keep going, but he was only given 7 minutes. The main speaker was the mayor of the town, and that was a disappointment. He did not seem to have a deep relationship with the Lord, and mainly spoke about how "lucky" he had been all his life.
