Pictured above with his beautiful wife Tara is my old seminary buddy and gifted pastor, Rev. Mark Weathers. Mark is the pastor of Providence PCA in Concord, North Carolina. Mark will be speaking at our men's retreat this evening and tomorrow. Mark recently wrote a great little book on how to pray for your wife. Order one! Mark and I had many classes together at Covenant Seminary from 1995-98. Mark was a stellar student- I couldn't shine his shoes academically, spiritually, or in any other area...except one-and I plan to prove it today.
You see, Mark lives in North Carolina where the people think they know what true barbecue is. It's so very sad- that mustardy, vinegary, wretched stuff they ruin fine meat with. It's even more heart-wrenching when you consider how sharp this dear brother is- that he would be so delusional, so ignorant to the taste of true heaven-originated barbecue.
He thinks I invited him to come minister to the brothers at Redeemer, and I did, but I would be derelict in my duties as a brother in Christ to not gently set him straight in this key culinary area.
So, in just 30 minutes I will take him to one of Kansas City's finest BBQ establishments- Jack Stack BBQ. Finally, his eyes will be open and he will indeed be complete. At that moment he won't need to thank me, the look on his face will be enough.
