“I give you a new command: Love one another. Just as I have loved you, you must also love one another. By this all people will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:34-35
Wow, what a wild and crazy week it has been. History has been made and our country seems to be drifting. The distance between right and left are getting wider every minute and our national identity is being skewed. So many people have become their political affiliation.
I love to dream! I have always been a dreamer and it seems as if I must be passing my wonder gene onto my grandchildren.
This past weekend I had the opportunity to take three of my grandkids to Toys-R-Us to pick up three copies of the 2016 Christmas Catalogue.
Foggy Brain! Is this a new trend…I think not.
It’s real folks (don’t judge me)…can I get a witness from some of my coffee drinking friends?
Greetings from our friendly neighbors up north, and no, I am not talking about south Georgia. I am talking about Canada. I recently returned from Toronto Canada, the fourth largest city in North America. It is a beautiful city with a great need for the life-changing gospel.
Recently, I talked about some disciplines that would help us serve ourselves as we get closer in our relationship with God. I want to continue on that thought in this post. As we develop the disciplines of prayer and study, and as we learn how to completely lean on and trust God. We can leverage these learned disciplines to serve our family.
Recently while visiting Toronto, I had the wonderful privilege to attend a Toronto Blue Jays baseball game. Toronto is a wonderful city with a beautiful ballpark that I had seen on television many times before. Since I was in the city, I wanted to take the opportunity to visit and experience this beautiful park. My love for Major League Baseball draws me to these sports sanctuaries and I can assure you this was an occurrence that I will not soon forget.
The Pledge of Allegiance
“I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
The National Anthem
I had the great privilege of traveling to Toronto this past week to meet with some church planters who are intentionally being all about the gospel in the beautiful city that God has called them to serve.
What a great city.
By nature, I am an outcome guy. The outcome is the desired effect, it is where you want to end up. It is easy for me to dream about the outcome. I always seem to look ahead and romanticize the future. The nuts and bolts of the systems and process sometimes overwhelm me. You see, I want to see and experience the systems and processes that I am working on…operational and fully functional.
