Thoughts from the weekend
I'm not given to speaking in a lot of hyperbole, but I really do believe that yesterday could be a "tipping point," for our church.
The worship was incredible.
God's anointing was there, especially in the second service after I spoke.
Freedom in the spirit as we worship God is a wonderful experience.
I couldn't get away from 2 Samuel 6, and shifted my sermon almost entirely to that passage - and God honored that Holy Spirit led move.
We are so grateful and thankful that Pastor Amanda is with us, leading us not only in song, but in true, spirit-led, anointed worship.
There are songs that we sing that we pray that God will anoint - there are other songs that carry the anointing with them, like the song entitled, "Revelation".
Great to have Drew Centeno with us to work in our children's ministry department.
Debbie and I went and saw the movie, "The Rabbit Hole," with Nicole Kidman. It's been a while since I have watched such a thoughtful, poignant movie that deals with a difficult subject. Grief.
Everyone grieves differently.
There is not a "right" or "wrong" way to grieve.
One scene perfectly captures the film's essence. During a mundane household task, Becca asks her mother, whose 30-year-old son died of heroin addiction, if the pain of losing a child ever goes away.
"No," her mother tells her with aching honesty. "It changes. The weight of it. At some point, it becomes bearable, and you forget about it for a while. But it's what you've got instead of your son, so you carry it around."
God is moving in our church - let's all just "hang on" for the ride!
Watched a little bit of the Pro Bowl - BORING.
Looking forward to the seminars (parenting and marriage) this weekend!
