The Pastor's Pen
Dear Friends,

  We are now in the fifth week of the Season of Lent. On Sunday, for my sermon series Christ Encounters, I will explore the account of Jesus washing the feet of the disciples. Why did he do this? What did it mean?

  You can read my third report from my experience in the Nashville Police Department's Community Police Academy in the Pastor's Blog.

  On Wednesday, following the Fellowship Meal, I will again lead a Lenten Bible Study starting at 6:30 p.m. The passage under discussion will be Matthew 21:6-17 -- Jesus' triumphal entry in to Jerusalem.

  I look forward to worshiping with you on Sunday.

  Blessings,
Upcoming at FPC
