It’s been a quiet week as I’ve been trying to catch up on a bunch of things
This Week I Enjoyed – 1. my pastor’s sermon on the deity of Christ yesterday. He started a series on the new doctrinal statement that the EFCA updated last year (later this year, our church will vote whether to accept it or not). 2. An area-wide youth worship service called Linked. It included about 10 churches and their respective youth workers organizing the event. The service focused on the theme of Christ’s mission that he called us to. Myself and two others were responsible for the prayer stations that were set up below the sanctuary. The entire night turned out to be a beautiful experience for those gathered, including several of our own students.
Reading – the same as last week and not enough.
Lent Update – Have been pretty faithful in my vows thus far. One of them (concerning people), I’ve missed a few moments but I’m trying to compensate and have been adjusting along the way.
Listening to – Love Drug’s Paper Scissors that I downloaded FREE (and so can you) from Noisetrade. I like it. It’s different from their first record and it has a slow dark side to it. I’ve also been listening to some Relevant and Mars Hill podcasts and re-listening to some of the recordings of the Amidst the Powers Conference. I hope to blog my thoughts on the Hauerwas lecture soon. Keep an eye on Evan’s blog too.
Student Ministry Update – this week, we are taking a break from Kimball’s they Like Jesus but not the Church curriculum because we have our student leadership students running the night this week. I always look forward to how they do it – it’s revealing in some ways and it’s inspiring in other ways. There are some moments where we see our influence upon them and others moments when we see God working in them independent of anything we’ve done.
Looking forward to – iPhone 3.0 update
What made me laugh this week – Pink Lights put Off Spotty Teenagers and this video below is funnier than the Office season (but it looks like Michael’s resignation is going to save the season).
