I can’t wait for Sunday at The Grove. Here are a few reasons:
We had a great crowd for Easter, and will have many of our travelers back home this week. Add in those who are recovering from illness, we may have our largest Sunday of the year this Sunday. That would be great.
The music rocks….and it means something. Which is the perfect combo for me.
Plus………..this is where we’re going –
This series picks up after the Rescue and answers the question “What Now?”
- If you have wondered about what happens after you become a Christian….
- If you have wondered about what happens next (or if you’re just curious)…..
Then this series is for you.
We’ll explore subjects such as:
- If you’ve become a Christian, why does God leave you here?
- What’s the strategy that God uses to accomplish the “rescue” of other lost survivors
- What are these things called “spiritual gifts” and what does that mean?
- IMPORTANT – You will have an opportunity to plug into a small group of people to explore the question of spiritual gifts and discover your own.

If you’ve been tracking this series on Manhood, I am taking a break from it until Monday of next week. The next few days will be highly intensive for me as I complete the preparations for the Easter service. As such, I want to turn my attention on the blog to thoughts of Easter.
Along with that, today is a very busy day for me. Nathan Giffin will be here shortly to spend a day envisioning his work and skills put to use in our building. If that rings a bell (of if it doesn’t) you can refresh your memory by reading the “Burning Man” post from a couple of weeks ago. His work is nothing short of amazing, and it could potentially be the finishing touches that we need for our building.
Additionally, I will be meeting with Scott Campbell. Scott is a missionary in Montreal, Canada. His story is full of challenge, hardship, victory, and frustration. There is much work to be done there and Scott has been fighting the good fight for years in a spiritually difficult location. I am anxious to see him, to hear about his latest efforts, and to encourage him in his work.
Stay tuned for updates from today, and for some helpful thoughts regarding Easter.
