Preaching at CRPC Round II


As most of you know, I preached for about two and a half years after Dr. Kennedy went home to be with the Lord. It was my pleasure to bring the Word to the congregation. Yesterday I brought a message on the Pharisee and the Tax Collector.  You can find this just below this blog. This coming week the message will be on the parable of the “Good Samaritan” which, when properly understood is one of the most shocking parables in the Bible.

My twitter handle is @drsamlam and I will remind you as the time comes closer is you would like to follow me (no need however).

While I know that my style of preaching is not like the last pastor, I hope that the exegetical look at passages will be helpful to those who are looking for a careful examination of God’s word.

If you are reading this and happen to be at the service, please stop by the lobby after the service and tell me hello. I’d love to meet you. If you would like to set up an appointment, please email me at and I can send you my assistant’s information.

At this point, I am only glad that the Lord has allowed me to work on a small corner of the kingdom. I am not anywhere near the best but the Lord uses small people to do great things. For that I am thankful.


Free Books


I have resolved to start writing again (darn that laziness that I inherited from Adam). What better way to start than to tell you about free books?

Those of you who know me might be shocked that I am getting rid of books. While I am getting rid of some of them, most are from a “purge” of the Knox Seminary Library. We have hundreds of books that are sitting out waiting for a good home. All that you need to do is stop by during regular hours (9-5) and ask for the “free book room.” You can spend hours going through and finding some great stuff.

If you do stop by, please see if I am free to come down and see you. I would love to show you what I think are some of the great things to get.
There are lots of great things happening at Knox and I will look forward to sharing them with you in the days and weeks to come. Suffice it to say that I am AMAZED at the grace that the Lord has shown us and the wonderful place that the seminary finds itself in.
