Life is never easy, but with the Lord's help, we can get through even the most difficult situation.
I love the new Shepherd LIVE worship CD that Michael North produced. You'll be able to pick up a copy at the Praises bookstore or purchase one at the Call On Jesus counter. You WILL BE BLESSED.
Many people have been working 24/7 this week building the set for the Passion Play. As you may recall, the play was moved at the last second to the Tent last year. We have a new director this year, and it's going to be AMAZING. Get your tickets early this year. I want to thank ALL THE FOLKS working on this year's play in advance .
We have already begun plans for our Easter service under the Tent. It is going to be GLORIOUS.
Pastor Tim is leaving for Poland today. We are looking at helping plant 100 churches in that part of the world. That is just ONE project out of MANY that we are involved with around the world. Pray for Tim's safe travels.
I spent Monday with three preachers from Kansas, Florida, and Illinois, Brother Joe Wright, Gary York, and John Henry, respectively. I wish I could have spent a week with them. It is always beneficial to spend time with these men, talking and mentoring one another.
I met a father this week who has a 22 year old daughter who has been sick. She is NOT interested in serving God, and she lives close to our Brentwood campus. Would you pray with me that somehow OUR CHURCH could minister to her and that her heart would be OPENED to serving the Lord?
I wish I was going to the Holy Land this year. I wish YOU could travel with me to the HOLY LAND sometime in the near future.
I love High School Basketball. The Hillcrest Varsity Girls, led by sharp shooter Aundrea Dava, made the playoffs and play Thursday night. Go EAGLES!!! And keep an eye on Lauren Holiday of Campbell Hall. She is a star in the making. And Gennifer Branden over at Chatsworth High School is a PHENOM. Go watch her play.
Someone bought me tickets for me and my 12 year old daughter to go and see Phantom of the Opera on Friday night for her birthday. I enjoy seeing plays like that. Have you seen Wicked?? Don't be mad... but I lovedddddddddddd Wicked. And Ragtime... and Les Miserables.
I'm supposed to have a birthday next month, but I've decided to skip it altogether. Besides, I don't feel any older, so why should I try to convince myself that I am any older? Why would I do that?
We will be in a new series this weekend, "He is the Vine and we are the B.R.A.N.C.H.E.S." Read John 15 and see if you can figure out what each of those letters stand for. The first one to figure it out will get a FREE CD copy of the entire series.
I started with a meeting at 7:30 AM this morning and it's now 5:15 PM. I have been in meetings literally ALL DAY LONG. I wonder if Jesus was ever in a "MEETING."
I need to shut this thing down and think about what I'm going to do next. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
Maybe see who is on Facebook?
Maybe see who is on Myspace?
Maybe see where all my children are.
Maybe tackle a few more things before heading home and watching the Laker game???
Maybe ride my hog?
Maybe answer a few more emails ?
Maybe just think MORE about JESUS?
YES... that's what I think I'll do.... Just think MORE ABOUR JESUS!!!
Will you be joining me???
