I had the great honor of preaching at the bi-lingual (Spanish and English) 5th Sunday service at the Santa Paula Church of Christ in Santa Paula California yesterday. My dear friends Bob and Liz Perez invited me to preach the Sunday before the Pepperdine Bible Lectures (Harbor 2023).
It was a new experience for me to be in a fully bilingual service, but it was wonderful and beautiful. The singing was messy at times. We sang in English and Spanish at the same time. But it was lovely. There is something unique about hearing voices singing in unison while singing with different languages. Same tunes, but different wording. The sermon was translated by a member of the Church. He did an excellent job and was patient with me.
Here is the recording of my sermon from Santa Paula:
To God be the story! Amen.
