Hey, if anyone has some frequent flier miles they're not using and want to help me get to Seattle for the next Acts 29 Bootcamp at the end of February, shoot me an email at email@example.com. I'd love to help assess some of the new church planters and get some time around some of the boys.
I had someone who's part of our church ask how they could help out as we continue to grow and develop and move. Here's what I'm saying these days:
Show up on Sunday mornings hungry for God and looking to love other people. Bringing other people who need Jesus is always a good idea.
Get involved in doing life with other people through one of our community groups. Everyone needs to be part of a handful of people who are taking care of each other as they join Jesus in his mission of putting a broken world back together.
Do mission by finding where your God-given strengths collide with God-given opportunities, needs, burdens and desires. Leverage what God has given you (time, money, energy) for the sake of others.
Aaron and I went to see U23D at the IMAX at the Mall of Georgia. We giggled for the first five minutes - there are no words to describe how happily surreal the entire experience was.
The set list was great - not perfect ('Love and Peace' off the How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb album is there for some of the visuals rather than for the timelessness of the song). The audio was tremendous and the cinematography was stunning. Okay, so there are words...but they don't do the film justice.
On Sunday, I continued our 'Question Everything' series on four big worldview questions (Who Am I? Why Am I Here? What's Wrong With The World? How Does It All Get Fixed?) by talking about the reality of sin as the vandalism of God's perfect world.
