What a great weekend! Had a lot going on. Hope you had an excellent weekend as well.
- We had a great community group meeting Friday evening. Bill McKenna, one of our members, led the discussion on God’s will for our lives. Lots of awesome insights.
- Saturday evening gatherings were great at LifePoint Church. Joe’s teaching session on the glory of God was just outstanding! It was a challenging experience for me. It has given me a better sense of His glory in our lives.
- Had a great conversation with Joe P. We discussed an opportunity he has at John’s Hopkins to start a ministry to international students. It really seems like a God thing. Go for it Joe!
- Sunday Louise & I went to Leesburg, Va for a wedding. I was the officiating pastor. It was a picture-perfect time. It was a bit hot though. Great time connecting with people and sharing the good news of Jesus.
- An aside to our trip to Leesburg was that we left Erin with a care-taker (Casey). They had a great time together. It was a win/win for both of them. It gives us a good feeling about leaving Erin with Casey and others in the future when we need to be doing other things. Just in case you’re not aware, Erin is our 36 year-old daughter with Down Syndrome. She has been living with us since March 12th.
- I usually don’t include our movie watching fare in the Sunday Evening Reflections post, but last night we watched a movie titled “Millions”. It’s about two boys who find a lot of money (British Pounds) and have to spend it before the Euro goes into effect. One brother wants to spend it on himself, the other on the poor. It’s a great take on the poor, compassion and social justice from another slant. The boy concerned about the poor keeps seeing saints and martyrs. The Apostle John even shows up. I don’t agree with all the theology in the movie, but it is a fresh way of looking at these areas of concern to many of us.
Hope you all have a GREAT week.
