Woke up to 14 of snow. Now in #Orlando for meeting of North American #Baptist Fellowship. Look for coverage of NABF in February issue of Word&Way, as well as in upcoming episodes of our podcast Baptist Without An Adjective.
It snowed about a foot today for my #birthday. So, we went outside & built an igloo. It fits my 6.5-year-old son better, but I made it in! We used some plastic shoeboxes to shape the snow bricks (& more snow for mortar). Fun family afternoon. #jcmo #snow #snowday #snowmageddon
Attended a prayer service this morning for Mo. legislators & other political leaders. It was sponsored by the Missouri Baptist Convention & Concord Baptist Church. Later today, the 2019 legislative session starts. . In this photo, John Stroup of Freeway Ministries in Springfield, Mo., preaches as Mo. Governor Mike Parson, a longtime #Baptist, sits in the front row. #moleg #jcmo
