These last 2 weeks have been devoted to forgetting. 

Forgetting the millions of details of the things that go on at work, and concentrating on the family that God gave me.

Sometimes it has worked…..sometimes not.  I am constantly drawn to answer email, so that something doesnt get missed.  But for the most part, my attention has been on spending some great time with Dawn and Skylar…….and it has been a blast.

I think that I need to forget more often

We have a new series coming out called What’s True.  This excerpt is called “Whats Strength?”   Let me know what you think.

This video doesn’t exist

Hey, check this out.  Its one of our new Sermon Jams that we are testing out.

I Still Love You!

Pastor Bob left this weekend to attend the Calvary Chapel Senior Pastors Conferencein So. California.  Next week he will be hanging with several hundred Senior Pastors from all over the world.  It’s a very unique time that happens only once a year. 

Not only do you get to hear what everybody else is doing, you get to hear how your ministry is effecting them.  Its always an encouraging time when Bob hears that churches from all over are either using his teaching series, listening to him on radio or watching him on television.

We are in a season of evaluating our effectiveness in all the ministries that we participate in.  We really want to be more like a knife and less like a saw.  Both do the same work, but the knife is more exacting, …..dividing the bone from the marrow if you will.

Less hacking, more carving.

For those of you old enough to remember that old song by the Doobie Brothers, I offer condolences.  But….as we begin another Sunday I’m reminded that I have the unique privilege of working at a place where I get to see people surrender their lives to Jesus EVERY TIME WE MEET!

Its not a boast, its just the way it is here.  The fact is, we get used to seeing it, and like everything else in life, we take it for granted. 

Our first service starts 20 minutes from now, and I know that by 2:30 this afternoon there will be many more people in the kingdom because of how God chooses to use this place.

Just taking a moment to say “Thanks God!”
