I really need to know what is the meaning of the word "Communion." Is it not the same as the word koinonia in Greek? Because if it is, then many of us in church have been lead astray by traditional viewpoints and we have a bit of a problem.

The Church

My friend and fellow youth minister, Chris Rampey, has this to say to us today.

2 Corinthians 3:14
"But their minds were made dull, for to this day the same veil remains when the old covenant is read. It has not been removed, because only in Christ is it taken away."

What if the Church in America, no matter which version you belong to, has a veil over it's eyes. Are we The Church that Christ leads? Do we glory in Christ and the way He served and honored God. Or do we glory in Man made traditions and the thoughts of the Men who began our version of Christianity.

The question is does the Church you belong to have a veil over its eyes? What is it? What can be done about it?"

Six Flags Fun!

Just got back from a great weekend in Dallas, TX!! 35 of us got to spend some great time together at Six Flags all day on Sat, then we crashed hard in the motel that night.

We got to worship with the Legacy Church of Christ where my buddy, Allan Stanglin, preaches. Great times there!!

We finished it off with a good time of eating, shopping and ice skating at the Galleria!

And best of all I got to see my sister, Misti, and her family!!

Word of the Day

I used to have at least one day per week where I would post a significant quote and throw in an occasional word for my readers to try to figure out. I am going to start doing that again right now. This time, every week will have a word of the day and a quote of the day.

Whoever can answer the fastest (whether by comment, email, text or call) is the winner of many brownie points that can be collected on a later date. Here is the word that you will need to figure out:

Abundant Life!

I am stealing Terry Rush's blog from this morning to share it with you. I say a hearty Amen! to it. He has such joy, energy and passion for life in God's world and his words today just get me revved up for life in its abundance!! How can we feel any other way after reading this?!?

"Who wouldn't like to be you? Every blind person would give an arm for your ability to read this blog. Others would love to have just one good friend and you have how many.....? While you may have a job you hate, thousands would love to have a job. Some worry over hair turning gray while so many lost theirs to chemo.

Irritations are overrated. Let them go. They aren't worth our earth-time; let alone our kingdom time. So the plumbing is clogged. Get it fixed. Think of how many went to their graves early who would have loved to live a bit longer to gladly fix a clogged shower.

Wake up to your own wonder! Wake up. You who constantly spoil your day by griping about it? Stop it! It's an insult to the Creator who gave us these days. So you are ten pounds overweight. Do something about it....and in the meantime be thankful you aren't 210 pounds overweight. Basically, quit harping at your body that has been very good to you.

Every morning we get up and face obstacle courses; not as spectators, but as participants. Hurdles are many and several are high. And by day's end we will have skinned our knees, run out of breath, and at times finished last. Glory. We were in the race!

Wake up to the spectacular day of now. It is not average....and you are not average. You are blessed"

Yesterday Was...

  • Amazing because we had Terry Rush here as our 5th Sunday guest speaker. What a great man of God he is!!
  • Powerful because God worked in the lives of Evelyn Hunt and Shirley Wallace through his almighty word.
  • Moving because worship with 450+ in the same room has that sort of impact. Especially when singing the newer praise songs (wondering what kind of response you'll get) and hearing everyone sing out!!
  • Sweet because the fellowship with brothers and sisters in Christ always is.
