I began the morning by visiting the memorial site of fallen Deputy Goforth, in Cypress, Texas, to offer a prayer. There I greeted another deputy, and spoke briefly with an NBC reporter who approached me. I was surprised to see people there so early.

From there I headed to Living Word in Katy to preach at 8, 9:30 and 11. Then to Hope Beasley for a congregational consultation. Finally, back to Living Word for their building dedication.
