Matthew Paul Turner on Fear

Matthew Paul Turner's church has been doing a series on fear. They asked him to write and present an essay on the subject. Matthew's a great writer, and I think the video is worth six minutes of your time to view.

So what's it worth to you?

Retreat 2009 is coming up in a week and a half. The retreat is about stepping aside, slowing down, spending time with God. Our theme this year is "Coming to God." We'll look at how we approach to God, how God sees us and spend some time looking at the very basics of prayer.

One of our desires is to never let money get in the way of ministry. There are always economic realities to what we do, but we do our best to manage that part so it doesn't interfere with what God wants to do in us.

The last few years we've gone with a "pay what you can afford" approach. We've only ever done limited fundraising, so in previous years the church has covered any gaps. That options just isn't available this year, so we need to do things differently.

We have a limited amount of scholarship funds available. If you cannot afford the full registration cost, please contact us. We know this is a special time, and we want as many people as possible to attend.

Maybe I sound like any other youth pastor or preacher, but I don't care. I'm sensing something brewing. Our Father is at work in this retreat. It's about restoration and being able to be comfortable in our own skin and in His hands. Be ready. Be watching. Be open. There's a Father who loves you and longs to share life with you.

Christmas Party Time

We're having a Christmas party on Saturday, December 20 from 6PM to whenever. We'll hang out, eat, listen to music, watch a Christmas classic and exchange gifts.

Here's the catch. You can't buy a gift. You have to bring a gift, but it has to be something you already have, something you want to re-gift or something you make. If you make a gift, you have to already have the supplies to make the gift. You can also give a gift of your time or...I don't know. Get creative. You just can't spend any money on the gift.

If you have suggestions for an appropriate Christmas movie to watch, shoot me an email or leave a comment.
