Pastor Scotty Smith is one of the “original” members of the New Directions dating back to 1968. After his high school and college years with NDI, he has had a wonderful ministry as the founding pastor of Christ Community Church in Franklin, Tennessee, where he is still the Senior Pastor for Preaching, Teaching and Worship. He is also a Seminary Lecturer. Scotty is the author of a half dozen books and travels and ministers widely in America and abroad. He recently started writing this “daily devo” for his parishioners and friends. So I am sharing it with all of my personal friends and partners with joy, thanksgiving – and a bit of spiritual pride as one of our alumni. I invite you to visit Scotty’s blog on the Christ Community Church website to receive inspiration from Scotty’s daily sharing from God’s Word. You can view Scotty’s blog here or you visit his Facebook page here.
