Comment from Phil Henry:

Josh Everett uncovered this link to Bunyan’s Sermon on the Rich Man and Lazarus, and passed along this quote to me, which I think is excellent, and a warning:

Commenting on verse 23, he says “Third. That some are so fast asleep, and secure in their sins, that they scarce know well where they are till they come into hell; and that I gather from these words, ‘In hell he lifted up his eyes.’ He was asleep before, but hell makes him lift up his eyes.”

Comment from Phil Henry:

Friends,

I thought Sunday was terrific. It was great to see so many come out and celebrate with us; and the whole afternoon was fun. In my message, I shared a short history of Mercy Hill, which I’ll reproduce here:

I was called by the New Jersey Presbytery in September of 2008 to begin a new church ministry in Gloucester County.

The problem was that, at the time, I lived in southern Arizona, had never lived in New Jersey, we had money, no mother church, and I had never planted a church before.

The good news was that we did have a couple of praying families and the blessing of Tenth Presbyterian Church, Covenant Presbyterian in Cherry Hill, and a big vision: to saturate Gloucester County with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

We set out to raise more than $300,000 in pledges and gifts toward this work, which by God’s grace was accomplished, and which was the “sign” we prayed for in order to put our house in Tucson on the market and move to New Jersey.

Now, four years later, we are praising God for His blessing.

To read the rest, follow this link to our blog, where I posted the whole thing.

Thanks again to everyone who came out, and especially to those who brought guests.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Pastor Phil Henry
