NEWS: Most of our State Legislators have been in their home districts this month, catching up or resting up before they return to Sacramento on August 2nd to deal with our state’s approximately $20 billion budget deficit. It is a difficult challenge since the two parties have such radically different approaches but must come to agreement.
MEMORIAL: Senator Dave Cox passed away this month after a long illness. I am grateful for the few occasions I had to spend time with him this year, including discussing his faith.
PRAYER: Pray for our Legislators, especially those working primarily on the budget, to have wisdom (to know what to do), humility (to be teachable) and courage (to do what is right). Pray that Senator Cox’s departure leads many to think about things that are eternal and to look up for salvation and strength.
PERSONAL: My family and I are doing well. Valerie is a high school teacher with summers mostly off, so she is enjoying lots of time with our two children. I am speaking and teaching often at various churches throughout California, grateful for the opportunity to expose more people to this important ministry.
VIDEOS: I recorded two brief videos recently – one that highlights my approach to the Capitol and another that is a casual interview with a Sacramento lobbyist. Click here to watch them. I would love to hear your thoughts in response.
