VBS starts!

Keep us in prayer as one of our summer outreach to kids begins this week. We're hoping to bless the socks off of some kids and to help them to desire a relationship with Jesus that is life changing. I'm so thankful for a huge group of helpers to make it happen!

Well I went out last evening in the incredible heat for my first real bike ride since my surgery. I went 12 miles and averaged over 14 mph so I was quite pleased with my first foray. And my bike still rocks!!! I'm just praisin' the Lord for His healing!

He's Back!

I have been traveling a lot in my ministry this summer...annual conference/summer camp/mission trip. God stuff, no doubt. But I'm glad to be able to put my hand to the Cornerstone plow for a season. We are at a very odd spot in our history. We are 8 years old, and in many ways we act like an 8 year old! We are trying to grow up, but we're also confused about what growing up means. We have some big dreams for the future, but we struggle to work toward them with real tenacity sometimes. We seem at times to be more concerned with what we're going to get for Christmas, as opposed to what we're going to give, if you know what I mean. Indeed a blessed time to be in ministry, and indeed, a challenging time as well. Our leadership team is meeting this evening to reconnect and to seek the Lord's face as we continue our journey. Pray for your leadership, whomever they may be, as they need your prayers more and more as the times change and we Jesus-followers seek to be faithful to Him and to the changing world!

A Few Days Off and Then On a Mission

Carla and I are taking Friday and Saturday off for some rest and relaxation. Sunday, after worship, 25 people called Cornerstone Church are going to Philippi WV for a week of remodeling and community children's ministry. Should be awesome. Keep us in prayer!!!!

...have to make decisions that people don't always understand. Leaders have to make decisions that, often times, people don't agree with. Leaders have to sort through the multitude of voices to hear the voice of Jesus in the midst. Leaders have to follow that Voice at any cost. Are you a leader?
