D.C. or Bust


Grace to you, friends!

We’re having a blast showing Julian, our Romanian son, the sites of our nation’s capital. As usual, the city is buzzing with people from all walks of life and from every corner of the world. The summertime temps are sizzling, just like in Paducah. Since this is a whirlwind tour, I won’t write much this morning.

Just being here always makes me grateful to be an American. We enjoy freedoms and opportunities known nowhere else on the planet. You’ll be encouraged to know that I’ve observed multiple examples of Christian believers living out the gospel here in this ultra urban context. Many social ills are also obvious, so it’s reassuring to know that God’s people are choosing not to retreat. “Lead On, O King Eternal …”

If you haven’t yet prayed for our government leaders today, I encourage you to do that (First Timothy 2:1-4). We are blessed with the privilege of speaking into the halls of power, so let’s speak to our Lord first. May He keep each one of us “lightly salted” for His glory!

After Washington, we’re off to New York and Boston. Josh will enjoy a few days with his cousins, so plenty of sleep deprivation awaits us all.

Sending love in Christ to all of you,


Pastor Charles
