Back In The Swing Of Things
Well, I’m by no means recovered, but I am in the process of recovering.
This week I even made it back to work at the church! This is day three in a row of being in the office. That may not sound like a whole lot, but if you’ve ever had mono, you know how ridiculously ill you can get. I get tired very easily. A week ago I would move from one floor of the house to another and feel exhausted, stairs were killer. This week I seem to have improved much more rapidly than I was before. Recovering from mono is like a boulder rolling down an incline plane. It starts off budging ever so slightly, but with another push, you can have it moving slowly and before long inertia has the thing and it’s moving like a freight train. I hope the “moving like a freight train” begins soon.
In other news, because I wasn’t able to preach as scheduled in June, I’ll be at the pulpit July 3-17. I’ll be doing a sermon series of sorts, speaking on why and how we as Christians are called to change the world. My inspiration and basis, as I shared in a previous post, is Max Lucado’s book, Outlive Your Life.
I’m starting a Bible study this Sunday, June 26, I think it will go fairly well, but it might be difficult to get people awake and participating at 8:30am. We may be playing with the scheduling a bit. This study is also based on the aforementioned book. We’ll be using the small group kit that is a companion to the book.
While preparing I was pointed in the direction of these links:
Even if you’re not a Christian, I hope you’ll check these sights out. You don’t have to be a follower to want to make a difference.
It feels good to be posting again. I hope to do it again soon.
