Company?s Comin? - Part 4

I’m sharing my own life experiences, hoping to give you some insight into the importance of Christian hospitality. By talking about the development of an open heart in my own life, I’m trusting God to use what I’ve experienced to stir up some consideration of how your past has shaped your openness to being used by God in a similar way.

Scavenger Genes

‎"I cannot tell you how much I believe in the power of the godly scavenger hunt. Seeking the outcast, sharing the message of the Gospel with those who feel they are unfit. Telling them of a God who became outcast in order to reclaim and recycle those who were outrageously deformed, discarded and lost. This seems to me to be the essence of the Scripture. It is a reclamation and recycling story."

Fitting in Fitness

“God is a circle whose center is everywhere and whose circumference is nowhere.” Living daily in that place seems to me to be the epitome of spiritual health.

Read Any Good Books Lately?

I would like to invite you to be part of our book group. For those of you who are not local or can’t fit this kind of commitment into your schedule, I would encourage you at least to begin reading books that open the world up to you. Read with at least another friend (or two), discuss what you have read and take time to pray for the world you have just discovered.
