  1. This reminds me of when I heard you preach on deacons from Acts 6 at Good Hope. One older gentleman sitting in front of me became irritated as you read Acts 6. He whispered to his wife, “there is no where in this passage that says these people are deacons!” I said to Tabitha, “I think I see the problem!”
