CHRISTIAN FAITH

BULLET THOUGHTS OF THE WEEK

HAITI

  • Our trip to Haiti last week was a very deep experience.  I will be blogging at various points about the trip.  There are several themes that emerged which were very enriching.  Bottom line: Haiti is an amazing place!
  • A few highlights: I was proud to be the pastor of our church’s team.  They were excellent in passionately representing Christ in a difficult place.  God did several physical healing wonders among our team and used our physical bodies despite some pretty extreme conditions. Seeing God work never gets old.

PENN STATE

  • The punishments for the most part are adequate.  I don’t like the vacating wins; they didn’t cheat at football.
  • The fines seem like they will help promote healthy atmospheres.
  • The response of the university has seemed appropriate.
  • While I agree Penn State needed to be punished, I wonder about the precedent this sets for the NCAA to be able to levy this type of punishment.

DISCIPLESHIP

  • Jesus told us to make disciples.  I know a lot of people in the Christian church who are struggling with what that looks like.  Great!
  • It will be exciting to challenge our church in the coming weeks to make disciples.

QUESTION

  • Would you be willing to give up anything and everything if it meant that God would move in your life and in your country?
