Miscellanies: Other Thoughts Worth Reading (12/6)

Praying for Matt Chandler and His Family

Matt Chandler is the lead pastor of The Village Church in Texas.  He is a man who fiercely proclaims the Gospel of Jesus Christ and lovingly seeks to heal wounds through the power of the cross.  A couple of weeks ago, on Thanksgiving morning, he suffered a seizure, and was found to have a brain tumor.  This past Friday, he underwent surgery to remove the tumor.  Early signs of the surgery were extremely positive.  His full recovery will take several weeks.  Pray for him, his family, and his ministry.  His potent teaching and heart for Christ have been an inspiration to several associated with Theological Synergy.  The title link is to a Facebook page containing updates about Matt.  You may also want to visit the church’s website.
