Monday Morning Mind Dump…

mind dump

  • Yesterday was a looong, but great day.
  • I preached the second part of our Waiting on God series in the book of Habakkuk and looked at what trusting God looks like when life doesn’t make sense.
  • I think people who come to church really dig the Old Testament because of how raw it is and how unexpected it is because few people are familiar with it.
  • I was overwhelmed yesterday with all the stories of hurt, questions, and pain in our church.
  • I found out last week from 2 different friends that each of their mom’s have stage 4 cancer.
  • Another friend has been told his dad doesn’t have much time left.
  • Just heartbreaking.
  • It was crazy yesterday too because we had our second highest attendance ever!
  • Second only to last Easter.
  • Blown away by that on the weekend before Labor Day.
  • If you missed it, you can listen to or watch it here.
  • Excited to talk about where God is as we look at the injustice in our world as we continue in Habakkuk this week.
  • Definitely a question a lot of people have.
  • Just love what God is doing right now as we get ready to add to our team.
  • Speaking of adding to our team, I’m so excited about having Jerad and Lisa Collier with us this weekend as we take the final step in our interview process and they look for a place to live in Tucson.
  • So, so excited about this.
  • After church yesterday, we had our first MC.
  • Love having a house full again for MC.
  • It’s awesome seeing so many new people.
  • I’m more and more convinced having every MC kick-off at the same time is great.
  • Brings so much energy and momentum.
  • We have almost 92% of our church in an MC this year.
  • Blown away by that.
  • Had our fantasy football draft party last night only to have Yahoo go down.
  • Total failure.
  • I’m starting to think ESPN might be a better route for fantasy football.
  • So we rescheduled it for tonight, so we are only delaying the inevitable of me destroying everyone.
  • So ready for football to actually start up again!
  • Time to get back to it…
