I'm a little late, but Sarah and I are proud to announce the birth of our third child, Elijah Jordan. Elijah is Hebrew and means "the Lord is my God." He was born on Tuesday afternoon and weighed in at 9 lbs 4 oz! He's a big guy! Both Mom and the boy are resting at home after a c-section. Thank you for your many, many prayers and well wishes. I'll be signing off here for a few days. I look forward to being back at Northgate on Sunday, December 19.


Children are a heritage from the LORD, offspring a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them (Psalm 127:3-5).
