I continue to be excited about this weekend…don’t forget to be inviting like crazy.
I know I say that every weekend, but this weekend I’ll be sharing the last message in the Live Like You Were Dying series and the topic will about how and why to live with eternity in mind.
Again the absolute worst thing that will happen is someone will tell you no.
Remember that’s not a rejection of you, it’s a rejection of attending church.
This weekend we can team up to make an eternal difference…I know myself and the team will be ready to do our part…now you just need to do your part.
Speaking of excited…the next series which we’re calling Outbreak should be phenominal!
Many of you are concerend with the state of the economy and more specifically, your own finances, so we’re going to take 3 weeks to look at what God has to say about it.
On Tuesday Earl was out of town and asked me to drop by the hospital to see someone since our visitation pastor Vernon Edward was also out of town.
When I first got to the guys room he was still in Physical Therapy, so I figured I should probably register with the hosptial chaplains office since it’s been 2 years that I’ve been in town and had never done that.
It was hysterical…the guy grilled me…he was seriously considering not giving me a name badge.
What should have taken about 5 minutes turned into a 20 minute ordeal…with at least 2 of those minutes consisting of him sighing heavily pondering what he should do with me.
Ultimately I walked out with a badge and a lecture on good hospital visitation practices and a request to make sure Earl knows all these things…mmmm, think someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed.
Our final small group lesson for Live Like You Were Dying was on Tuesday night…thought it was the best of all of them.
Hopefully your group is like ours and will take a week to celebrate all that God did in your group over this 4 week study.
Yesterday was a productive day because I could barely walk.
About 3-4 times per year I get a build-up of Uric Acid in one or both of my knees, which means for about 24 hours it’s in severe pain with swelling enough that it makes it hard to walk.
I was disappointed that I wasn’t able to help out with Trunk or Treat last night for the kids.
Dianna and her team do such a great job and are always offering to help us when we need childcare options, so I like to help out when I can.
Speaking of…she’s always looking for more volunteers. At the most you’ll probably be called on once per month if even that. She needs more help on both Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights. Here’s her e-mail you can let her know of your interest. firstname.lastname@example.org
Today is final preparations for the weekend! Can’t wait.
