So I moved into week 2 of our desert series tonight. It is always fun to do a series because you can use the same graphics and stuff and you don’t have to come up with a new topic every week, but I have a hard time not preaching my next week’s talk this week. I find myself chasing rabbits that are better left for a lesson down the road.
In light of my “What if…” idea of a few days ago I was thinking tonight how can I turn this lesson into something that is about missions. I don’t think I did a very good job, but at least I am thinking that way.
Tonight was one of those just a little off nights. There were a ton of new people there (5) and some old faces were back again. But for some reason the whole group was probably half and half between people listening and people doing something else. It made for a hard night for me, but I still think God spoke through my jumble.
I want to say one more thing that I am sure I will be saying a hundred times in the next few weeks. I will be so glad when we are able to meet in just one space. Right now we are starting upstairs and moving downstairs and it is killing me. The transition just kills any type of flow and I have to lug my guitar and computer downstairs and everyone has to wait while I get it set up. It isn’t a good system, but I believe it is almost over! YEAH!
