Matt Chandler is the Senior Pastor of The Village Church in Highland Village, Texas (about 45 minutes north of Dallas). On Thanksgiving Day he collapsed with a seizure that would later that day be diagnosed as cancer of the frontal lobe. Matt is a dear brother, lover of Christ and the gospel, and a great communicator of the Word of God. Keep Matt, his wife Lauren, their children (Audrey, 7, Reid, 4, and Norah, 6 months) in your prayers as well as the saints at the Village Church.

Here’s an excerpt:
Another cancer patient Chandler has gotten to know spends his time in radiation imagining that he’s playing a round of golf at his favorite course. Chandler on this first Monday in January is reflecting on Colossians 1:15-23, about the pre-eminence of Christ and making peace through the blood of his cross.
