Last week was a whirlwind of a week.
On Tuesday, I flew to Tallahassee so I could attend the funeral of Jerad’s (the worship pastor at Revolution Church) dad. Then on Wednesday I drove to Orlando to attend
The Magnetic Church Conference which was all about building a culture of evangelism in your church. I learned so much while I was there, still processing it all.
Read some great books on the plane:
and The ONE Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results, Ready to Be a Thought Leader: How to Increase Your Influence, Impact, and Success Leadership Blindspots: How Successful Leaders Identify and Overcome the Weaknesses That Matter. Stay tuned for reviews.
Got back early Saturday morning and then got to have an awesome morning at Revolution yesterday.
I taught on marriage and divorce and we had our highest non-holiday attendance ever.
On a holiday weekend even!
Makes me really excited to launch our series on Easter called
The New Rules for Love, Sex and Dating. I mentioned that on Facebook last night and got questions like, “will you talk about the resurrection on easter? Will you tie relationships into the resurrection?”
I don’t understand those questions. We talk about the resurrection every week.
One of the highlights last week was being walked around Epcot by a former Disney Imagineer. If you can ever do that, I highly recommend it.
The response to my message yesterday was overwhelming.
For me, it was so encouraging hearing from people who have walked through the pain of a divorce and how yesterday was helpful.
I think pastor’s often do a poor job of preaching on divorce and having a high view of marriage without making people feel bad.
It is possible to give people hope.
Watched the football games yesterday with some Packer fans.
Needless to say, it was a sad afternoon in our house.
Hoping for a good Super Bowl.
Not like last year.
I was excited to see the nominations for Best Picture.
I’ve seen some of them, but excited to see the others.
Stay tuned for my opinion on what should win.
Tons of great things are happening at Revolution right now as we head into the spring season of ministry.
