Skipping Stones 04.12.09

skipping-stonesThoughts bounce like tiny, flat pebbles across the pond in my head…

  • What an AMAZING day!  The weather was absolutely beautiful!
  • We got started early at the Community Sunrise Service.  Dave Kitchel and the Flora Community Choir did an excellent job helping us welcome the day with worship.
  • I’m so glad we decided to put every chair we had in the sanctuary – the placed was packed!  
  • That coffee brewing in the lobby as we came in today smelled SO GOOD!
  • Worship band flat KICKED IT today!  The extra singers on the stage added so much – thanks Michelle, Mike and Jim!
  • We had tons of first time guests – and if any of you are reading this, yeah, pretty much every Sunday is like that.
  • Kicked off new message series, “The God Questions” answering the most important question, “Is God for real?”  We managed to have some fun with a serious, and potentially “dry” subject – I don’t think folks will ever look at bananas, pop cans or alarm clocks again without thinking about the God who is crazy in love with them.
  • Reading through the Connect Cards and so blessed to see how many people indicated that their “next step” was “Trusting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.”  AMEN!
  • Quote of the day from one who came down front for ministry: “I’m scared to death, but I’ve GOT to take this step of faith!”  THAT, my friends, is why we do like we do…
  • Larry Osborne’s latest book, “Ten Dumb Things Smart Christians Believe” comes out this week… I’ve pre-ordered mine and it will definitely be added to my list right away – but for now, I’m digging into “It” by Craig Groeschel.  I’m pretty sure our church has “it” but I’m reading to find out for sure…
  • We’re gonna take a few days to catch our breath and de-compress a little, so I won’t mention Bible Beach Club – except to say it’s only 2 MONTHS AWAY!

Have a great week!
