Monday Morning Update 1/23/11

This morning was more chaotic than usual at our house. Multiple members of our set up team called in sick, so we had to hustle to get ready and get to church. My oldest daughter, Grace was under the weather as well. Unfortunately part of being the preacher's kid is having to attend church sick or not. She sat down in my classroom watching a movie until services were over.

I was excited to get to share with our congregation that our Adopt an Apartment project is underway. We have adopted a two bedroom apartment for a father and his two year old daughter. The family is currently residing at The Samaritan Inn, the only homeless shelter in Collin County. Their next stop will be at the Gateway Apartments, a bridge between the shelter and self sufficient, independent life. I am excited for our people to have the opportunity to bless this family. I think this will be a beautiful journey for us all.

Shawn preached about the Holy Spirit today. It is impossible for us to live holy, blameless lives in and of ourselves. I heard it explained once that it's like trying to iron a pile of clothes with a cold iron. If you want to be effective, you've got to plug in the iron. If we want to be effective, we have to be constantly in tune with our power source.

Praying that you will each seek God this week, and attempt to listen to his voice.
