Here are some current news stories involving pastors. Good to see the Lord’s work being done so faithfully.

—Mark Lewis, 39, pastor of Fellowship Baptist Church, entered the Fairfield courtroom from a holding cell following his most recent arrest on Friday on allegations that he fraudulently used the church as collateral to post bail.

Those people in my church wondering what I did this week, well, I didn’t make the news, I can tell you that. I read a really bad theology book during the Super Bowl. I worked at the food pantry. Attended a funeral. Shoveled lots of snow off my roof, and then did the regular weekly stuff I do. That’s about it.
