It's August and the beginning of heritage month at Fairview! Each Sunday during the month we will be having guest speakers who are serving the Lord and honoring His heritage.
This Sunday morning we were blessed to hear Dr. Michael Allison. Dr. Allison was born in Sturgis, Michigan and married his wife, Janet, shortly after high school. He was saved in October of 1971 while working his afternoon shift at radio station WAOP in Otsego, MI. He was called to preach in 1974 and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from Tennessee Temple College in 1976. He also holds a a Masters Degree in Religious Education and a Doctor of Ministry from Bethany Theological Seminary and an honorary Doctor of Divinity from Fairhaven Baptist College. He has been pastor of Madison Baptist Church since 1989.
Dr. Allison spoke today on how the wisdom of man always falls short of the wisdom of God. What a difference in man and God. Man sees death on a cross while God sees the blood flowing to give us life! Let's not refuse and reject the wisdom of God. Lets not looks back and say "If I'd only known!"
"Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory." I Corinthians' 2:8
