The hot, humid, and busy month of August included for me a side trip to preach at the First Presbyterian Church of Pittsburgh, which our board member Robert J. Lamont leaves to become president of the oldest life-insurance company in America. His replacement is John Huffman from the Presbyterian church in Key Biscayne, Florida.

I had also a splendid two-day retreat with the faculty of Evangel College (an Assemblies of God school in Springfield, Missouri). They are doing a fine work and are to be commended. Tom Zimmerman, the Assemblies’ general superintendent, is a long-time friend of mine.

Labor Day Sunday brought two treasured opportunities: preaching at Park Street Church in Boston and visiting with my daughter, her husband, and two of our grandchildren. Then my wife and I went on to New Hampshire to spend two weeks at a cabin on the shore of beautiful Lake Winnipesaukee. Now I am back for our annual staff retreat and looking ahead to the fall with great anticipation.
