    Practice? We’re talkin about practice?

    Maybe I’ll try and invite Allen Iverson to church, that would be sweet .

    I’m excited for the ‘launch’…we’ve been prayin in our small group for sheer unadulterated awesomeness come easter.

    Scott– “sheer unadulterated awesomeness” — that’s, well, awesome.

    David, thanks for this great reminder of what we’re all about. Often it’s easy for me to get wrapped up in the details and forget the bigger picture of who we’re doing this for. We’re not doing it for ourselves; we’re doing it for God, for his glory, and for those in our lives whom we want to know God and his glory.

    Thanks for the big-picture check.

    I am being honest here. My natural/sinful self reads this and my first reaction is, “I don’t like this. This will be change. This will be work. This will be loss.”
    And then Erin’s words on Sunday come to mind. Give God whatever offering I have, even if it feels very small most weeks, and God will transform it to carry out His purposes.
    That is where I am with this. I’m gonna do my best to offer up my time, treasure and talents for His transformation. And I am also hoping that God will take my struggling will to serve Him and TRANSFORM it for His Glory!

    Thanks Kristen. Your response is one of the reasons I wrote the entry. The first two months have been so good. I recognize my own reticence to ‘go for it’. It is so easy for us to think we are ‘done’ and yet…

    Personally I love being surprised and I can’t wait to see what God does through our community– as we push through our reticence and (as you put it so well…) do our best to offer what we got…

    see ya soon
