I was recently part of a spontaneous public survey that shocked me. When I thought about the results I was completely heartbroken.
Over the past few years, my wife and I have decided that we want to use every moment possible to make memories with our kids while they are still living in our home. We are not perfect at this by any means, so I don’t write that to make anyone feel guilty. It has just become a theme in our home that we are trying our best to accomplish. This past week my family (Jaimee, Addy, Mason, Emma, and myself) had a chance to make a memory.

This Sunday we will continue our series “Empowered” where we are looking at the empowering ministry of the Holy Spirit. Among other things, I will be talking about the similarities between the Global supply chain issues that have impacted everything from Chick-fil-a sauce to toilet paper and the effectiveness of the local church. There IS a connection, join me this Sunday to find out what it is.
Last week I gave a challenge to the church. If you missed the message, you can watch it here, I think it will be worth your time. The challenge I gave seems simple enough. Dedicate yourself to praying for 5 minutes per day. 5 uninterrupted minutes. It’s harder than you think!

This Sunday we start a brand new month (and a new ministry year) with a new series called Empowered where we will be looking at the empowering ministry of the Holy Spirit. Some call Him the Holy Ghost.
Okay. I know that there are things about Christianity that are hard to wrap our heads around. Jesus was born of a virgin. God became man and showed Himself as Jesus. Then the God/Man died on a cross. That’s hard to comprehend, but then there was the resurrection. If all of that wasn’t hard enough to believe or explain, now we’re going to talk about a Holy Ghost?

This past week was the first day of school for most of the families in our church. On Tuesday I enjoyed scrolling through my Facebook and looking at all of your kids holding their signs announcing their first day of school and what grade they are going into. My kids finished school a long time ago, so all of your pictures made me smile and reminisce on what those days were like for us. I know that behind the first day of school pictures was lots of planning! Trips to the store to buy backpacks and school supplies. You had to get the kids a haircut and pick out new outfits and shoes. You had to make the signs and get their lunches together too. Not that it will happen the rest of the year, but you might have even made breakfast for your kids on the first day. It may just be the first day of school, but it took a lot of planning and preparing to get ready for it.
