Monday Morning Mind Dump…

  • What an awesome day yesterday at Revolution
  • Preaching on marriage and relationships is always a blast for me
  • Yesterday, I got to cast the vision to the women of our church of what it means to be a godly woman and a godly wife
  • Such a high calling that has enormous implications for generations to come
  • I always love the reaction I get from local pastors when I tell them I’m preaching on male headship and submission
  • They look at me like they’re looking at a dead man
  • More pastors need to man up and call men and women to be who God created them to be
  • Everyone in your church wants to know what the Bible has to say on manhood and womanhood, dating, sex, marriage and parenting because almost everything they’ve tried hasn’t worked
  • If you missed it, you can listen to it here
  • It’s not just for women, I also laid out what a man should look for in a wife and how a husband can encourage his wife to be what God has created her to be
  • I loved reading the connection cards today and seeing the women who took the step to confess to their husband ways they’ve undermined his leadership in their family and are going to ask their husband how they can encourage him to lead
  • Love it
  • Next week, I’m unpacking what God calls men to be as husbands, as single guys and how to raise sons in that way
  • It’s going to be awesome
  • I put together a list of recommended books on dating, sex, marriage, biblical manhood and womanhood, family and parenting that is worth looking at if you want some more resources
  • Here’s the song the band played right before my sermon
  • Set it up perfectly
  • This past week, I read one of the more interesting books on leadership that I’ve read in a while
  • So, so good
  • Here’s my latest post on the resurgence
  • After a great morning at church, got to come home and watch my Steelers hold on and beat the hated dirty birds of Baltimore
  • Love when we beat the Ravens
  • Had elk burgers for the first time last night for dinner
  • Amazing
  • Got to hang with our neighbors who were building a relationship with
  • The christmas offering at Revolution is in full swing
  • Love the chance we have as a church to help move the gospel forward in Tucson through other organizations
  • I’d appreciate your prayers this week, I’m starting to think through my message for our “Christmas Eve Eve service” on December 23rd
  • Talking about “The image of Christmas”
  • Going with Katie and some friends to the Sufjan Stevens Christmas Sing-a-long tonight
