Preaching to the Lions

Bryan College

Chapel-1Earlier this month I had the awesome opportunity and tremendous honor to speak/preach to the student body at Bryan College in Dayton, TN (where one of our daughters attends). What a great university where Christ is “Above All.”

I was given the task of finishing a four-part study through the book of Colossians. I was told it didn’t matter what I preached, just as long as it was from the fourth chapter. Therefore, I felt led to address “Five Watches” in Colossians 4.

A Room of Lions

Daniel had to face the lions, but nothing like these – these “lions” were college students! Looking out at them made me feel a little bit like red meat. Just imagine hundreds of young, up-and-coming professionals staring at you!

Sometimes it’s just fun being a dad 😉

So, what are you doing with your time?

  1. Great. Glad you could speak there. We have a couple of graduate generations in our family from Bryan. You were in a Den of Daniels I think.
