Thank you thank you thank you.
An hour ago, Im in mid sentence commiting thoughts to writing about our big church questions when: “You’ve got mail” calls me from my processing and there you are- on time and on point.
The gap between our yearning for Spirit-filled, God-centered, life-giving Christian community and our experience of Church isn’t narrowing. But, in just the last 2+ weeks, so much has and is at this moment being stripped away. It is exactly that clutch of lifelong friends you speak about- that is lifting us out of the mire and will be the pathway to whatever ‘next’ looks like. Your beautiful words and the timing of them are just further affirmation.
(Seth- Each time I attempt to write to you about our ‘BreakThru” weekend, it promptly takes on a “To Sir With Love” quality and then God commandeers that time and Im left again with Thank You! There is so much more to say. Right now, we’re just swimming in it and prasing God for you and AIM. )
