first focus

14 01 2007

As I blog today, it’s following our Sunday service – WOW! What a day!

Pastor Mel has been teaching about our “shared” purposes on Sundays – especially as a church. I’m bringing some focus on Wednesday night by teaching about our specific purpose – the series I’m doing is called ID:the true you. In it, I”m basically using the next 8 weeks to look at how God has “wired” each of us. The first week I dove headlong into the issue of serving – the fact is, it’s in our ministry that we find our meaning! I shared with the crowd the thing that God had impressed upon me which is: Worship! Serve! Connect! – if you’re short-changing any of those three, you’re not walking in obedience to God and in all that He has for you!

Then, this morning, Pastor Mel taught about how the Word of God has to determine our thinking – he talked about how the prosperity message isn’t a message about $$$ – it’s about prospering in what the Word has to say for our lives! Good stuff – should be able to check it out in couple of weeks online.

Then, the sad news, a good friend of mine gave us tix to go see the Lady Dawgs play tenessee (spelling and lower case – intentional!) – we lost – we were close at one point closing their lead to just 2 points – but they played a hard-fought, physical game. First time we’ve seen the Lady Dawgs play – man, I love living near Athens – so cool to catch a game like that with so little planning.
