106th Day of the year - 259 days left
Well, here are some updates:
The book...Spirit Life
*all chapters of the book written and polished except one.
*complex charts done
*appendices to be polished - and bibliography
*then the book will be completed.
Now more and more time in prayer that it will be useful...and not "another book."
Interim pastoring - progressing well, meeting with board and top candidates in the next few days....the end of my ministry there is now coming into sight. Planning to use the final weeks to focus on preparing all for a healthy and happy welcome and adjustment with the new pastor. And perhaps intruduce a new ministry to the church.
Article - Is Hell for Real? - submitted to Evangel - requested by them....and early word is that it is fine and will work. Feedback yesterday from someone who read my most recent piece in the Evangel and was helped by it. The one on Stress Busters.
Coaching 4 guys each month...that is really going well. All are pastors of start-up churches...a great inspiration to work with them.
Reading through the word - The ESV Study Bible continues to be amazing. Best dollars you probably can spend. Great balance and condenced scholarship, wonderful maps and charts (got to have these!:)..and a bunch of timely articles. A library under one cover...and heavy enough that it has aerobic value!! Wonderful.
(Confession - I read some of Leviticus really fast.)
Family has never been better...the time with so many last weekend was off the charts. And this weekend we will interface with some Nebraska family as well. Family is truly the greatest gift...and the Bible calls us one big "family":Galatians 6:10, Ephesians 3:15, Hebrews 2:11, I Peter 4:17. Hey family....I love you!!
And a final thought. If your assessment of things TODAY is a bit blah...stop and add it up. In even writing this note I have been lifted.
Psst...TODAY "is the day the Lord has made....rejoice and be glad in it." Lots better than spending your time in the grumps about parts of it. (Psalm 118:24)
Living today...and in touch with you
