All Good Things…

…must come to an end. And so I is my Illinois adventure. Yes, I’m back in Virginia having spent Monday and much of Tuesday riding the rails across a snow-bound America. I must say that if you have the time, taking the train is an awful lot of fun; they do a fine job, and all four trains I rode on this trip were right on time…

The people in Illinois were amazing; I’ve never felt more welcome anywhere; God is doing an incredibly awesome work in their midst, and I look forward to the day when this will be true in every local congregation. For now, it seems to me that the reason He is working so mightily there is simply because these great people were willing to listen to Him, while maybe some other groups weren’t. Maybe that’s always the trick: Listen to that “still small voice” and follow where He leads… and be amazed at what happens.

The final Sunday (Sermon part 5) is linked below if you’d care to hear it. I would recommend that you check this one out, for it is the place where everything else comes to gether; you might enjoy the vision that you see in it…

    Listening at work, it just “happened”. The good Lord wanted me to listen as I coded an hour long newscast. I just started a new habit. God, via you, keeping me focused on headphones while planning my newscast I am doing.

    I like your reference 18:20 in about your church. We are here for God to serve him. That “Why Are We Here” or the “Meaning Of Life” questions often asked philisophically may have been answered? When my paid media days are over, I would love to transfer over to being in the media end of getting out God’s meassage.

    As I listened, I know you long enough to see how you move about as you spoke and the looks you give to the masses and your mannerisms. Like I was there in person. Sadly, Influenza A decided to tear me apart the past week and my head/neck still aches. Not making this up, it went away when I was listening to you. It was really good to see you up here….
