Hey all :) I wanted to share a quick update. First, I have not disappeared again! Last week was absolutely crammed with meetings, this week I've been focused on getting the website up and running for the church (www.experiencegracelouisville.org), and next week is all about the move to the Ville. (FINALLY!!!)
However, I wanted to share that good things are continuing to happen in this adventure. It's been strange though. Usually, I'm a ball of fire and on the move...well...that hasn't changed too much. However, there has been this alien (to me) patience and an ease with allowing things to unfold rather than trying to wrangle situations into submission. Kind of makes me wonder how many times I've gotten in the Holy Spirit's way with my exuberance and excitement lol. As I said in a previous post; so far it has been a whole lot of being in the right place at the right time. In other ways, it sort of feels like bowling and actually waiting and watching the ball knock down the pins, as opposed to throwing the ball and then racing it to the pins. I can't wait to share more on this front.
Despite the busyness, I did write a four-part piece while waiting on the technician to come and install internet service in my office. (We have now entered the 21st century!!!) The day that I had written that, I met a young man on the street and we had a very interesting conversation. I haven't started posting it yet, because I don't feel that part 1 is up to my standards (whatever that means), while the final pieces are pretty strong and very cantankerous...in a good way. However, I will share a small snippet of that conversation to hopefully whet your appetite.
Young man: "I don't like preachers."
Me: "Generally speaking, I don't either."
Let's see, what else? Ooh! I received an awesome donation towards the "Back to School" celebration. PLEASE keep them coming! This isn't some random church asking for handouts or for donations that will end up funding salaries or "expenses", but it is me and I can assure you that whatever we receive will go 100% to kids and families that need it. And make no mistake, this is Kingdom work.
What else? I was also going to post another Q and A video this week, but I'm going to hold off on that. I've gotten lots of good and fun questions, but I want more. Next week I will be posting what will be a very special video...at least to me. And then we'll get back to our regularly scheduled videos including a question from Australia; a question many are dying to have an answer to (lol).
I think that's it for tonight. I want to thank all of you that stop by here regularly and follow my shenanigans. You guys are awesome and I am humbled. Please keep checking back; I have a feeling that things are going to start ramping up in a hurry.
PS...152 Days until Christmas!!!
