THIS SUNDAY, Feb. 11th
Choir: Shine on Us
NOTE: NO REHEARSAL this week for, both, Adult Choir and Praise Team due to the Valentine holiday. However, I will still teach at 6:30pm for those able to attend this week’s class on Revelation. (see below for more info)
First of all – there is no news to share at this time. (Sorry!) But I did want to assure you of a couple of things:
- The people you voted to serve on the Search Team “get it.” I have been given the privilege of attending every meeting and have been impressed with their desire to “not settle,” but rather to take whatever time necessary to find the person Christ has set apart for this role in our church. They are 100% unified in this conviction.
- In addition, I have enjoyed and appreciated the team’s honesty, humility and willingness to boldly share individual convictions. Simply put, there are zero “yes men” on this team.
The team, chaired by Larry Vialle, is working prayerfully and diligently. Lift them to Christ! nw
A PICTURE DEFINITELY SAYS A THOUSAND WORDS
A dear friend sent me this photo (below) over the weekend. I must confess – when I saw it my heart leapt within my chest as it helped remind me how my son, Jordan, may have very well spent his first moments when he entered Paradise.
For everyone who has lost a loved one – know this: they don’t miss us. And they would never want to return to this fallen, corrupt planet. Because of the Cross and the Empty Tomb they are right now experiencing unfathomable joy and peace.
The 5th chapter of Revelation has a special meaning in my life. I’ll explain why on Wed. evening, Feb. 14th, at 6:30. Additionally, we’ll join the disciple, John, in the throne room of heaven as supernatural drama unfolds in the moments leading up to God unleashing his righteous judgment on a sinful, rebellious world. Join me as we continue mining the scriptures and discovering what God has to tell us through this fascinating book. nw

LAUGHTER IS GOOD MEDICINE
For those who may be unaware – there has been a moronic trend among teens to eat Tide Pods. It’s been dubbed the Tide Pod Challenge. Many have been rushed to their local ER. I saw this meme last week that was written, obviously, for all the mental giants choosing to consume laundry detergent. (I clearly remember eating dirt as a kid – but never laundry detergent.) 🙂
GRACE NOTES: He’s Not a Tame Lion
Behold Jesus Christ: the wild, terrifying, untamable Lion of Judah.
