Listening is the key to effective communication. – Dr. Lloyd Ogilvie
A wise man will hear and increase learning, and a man of understanding will attain wise counsel (Proverbs 1:5)
What can you do to help us promote this year’s community Thanksgiving service in Culpeper?
In my devotional on October 24, I mentioned that Dr. Lloyd Ogilvie will be the keynote speaker at the community Thanksgiving service in Culpeper on Tuesday November 20. His message will be titled “Aptitude, Altitude, and Attitude of Gratitude.”
This Thanksgiving service starts at 7 PM at Culpeper Baptist Church (318 S. West Street, Culpeper, VA 22701). Pastors are asked to arrive by 6:30 PM so they can prepare to come in together for the processional and then sit together.
Dr. Ogilvie will also be having lunch and speaking to members of the Culpeper Ministerial Association and other guests from Noon – 2 PM earlier that day (Nov 20). If you are interested in attending this lunch, please email Nancy Sharman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dr. Ogilvie served as Chaplain for the U.S. Senate from 1995-2003 and has authored more than 50 books. In February 1996, Dr. Ogilvie was recognized by Baylor University in a worldwide survey as one of the 12 most effective preachers in the English-speaking world. Included on the list, in which seven denominations are represented, are Rev. Billy Graham and Dr. John Stott.
Dr. Ogilvie believes that listening is the key to effective communication. His former nationally syndicated radio and television ministry was called “Let God Love You.”
Recently, Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California established the Lloyd John Ogilvie Preaching Institute and the Lloyd John Ogilvie Chair of Preaching as part of the Brehm Center for Worship, Theology, and the Arts. Dr. Ogilvie will hold his Preaching With Passion Conferences at Fuller.
If you live within a 1-2 hour drive of Culpeper, we encourage you to come to our community Thanksgiving service to hear and meet Dr. Ogilvie. Come to bless the cradle of religious freedom for the world and expect to leave blessed.
Heavenly Father, thank You for Dr. Lloyd Ogilvie. Thank You that this nationally renown man of God has chosen to come to Culpeper in this 400th anniversary year for Virginia. We ask you for a revival in our community, for hearts to be open, to be convicted and strengthened. Fill the preacher with your might. We want Your grace, mercy, and might. May Thy will be done in our community. Thank You Jesus. Amen.
