    U Matters

    I am reading John Huffman’s autobiography, “A Most Amazing Call.” What a great read and what an amazing pastor.

    We are blessed to have John Huffman at Union this weekend. He will preach at the three Sunday morning services and give a Legge Lecture at 5PM Sunday entitled: “A Biblical Profile of the Church and Person God Uses.”

    Dr. Huffman has met with the church staff and we are still talking about some insights he shared. At Matthew's invitation, Dr. Huffman spoke at Oasis on finding God’s will. We don’t want you to miss this opportunity to hear an eloquent Christian statesman. Hope to see you Sunday morning and evening!
