Rey Corpuz from Turkey Mission
Rey Corpuz, visiting from Victory Turkey mission. Good to see him again and his wife and son during worship today. Pastor Rey was first to shepherd us when we first came to Victory about 3 years ago and prior to their being sent to Turkey. When we see an ice berg, we see only a small part of it. I heard some nice comments about pastor Rey this morning, which was the "something deeper than the surface" of the iceberg about him ... The Book of James sermon passage on the tongue reminds me again of the power of this little muscle to give life or death. Speak carefully. Speak graciously. Speak truthfully. Time to repent and improve for once more! Edmund Burke puts it this way: "Applaud us when we run; console us when we fall; Cheer us when we recover." That's a positive, anointed tongue.
