50 years in the books

There were too many highlights from this weekend (our 50th anniversary weekend) to write them all down, but here are a few that come to mind...
  • Seeing the slides of the history of Ogletown Baptist.
  • Listening to Marvin Ford and Otis Doherty, former pastors of OBC, at the banquet. They are men of great faithfulness.
  • Seeing the OEx change from a banquet hall into a worship venue with the help of many OBC'ers. Great job.
  • The buses from Biltmore Baptist rolling into the parking lot (150 people!). I don't know if there could be a more joy-filled, servant-minded group in the world. Thanks guys for coming to the cool Mid-Atlantic.
  • Hearing our congregation sing, "The Power of the Cross" this morning.
  • Being reminded of the Hill family heritage by my dad's and mom's Bible.
  • Seeing the look on Canaan's face when he looked at the pig that had been roasted.
  • Downing 10 bottles of water at the picnic.
So many people did so many things to make this weekend possible. It was a ton of fun.
