It’s nearing midnight and my mind is going a hundred different directions, so rather than try and focus long enough for one coherent, thematic post, you’re going to need to bear with me as I unload a couple of thought-trains on your dock.
This morning’s services were remarkable. Jill Austin challenged thousands of people to the great What If of God. What If He was really among us. What If we could see reality and not be distracted by circumstance. Today we spent a significant time honoring her by sharing stories and committing to pursue the very things she had made her life about. There is no greater memorial than for young people to say “I want a life like that one….”.
We went from event to event today….church, then a birthday party for Girl Amazing, Annie Peterson. That was followed up by an attempted nap for Zoe, then a meeting with a couple to hear their adoption story…then out to a larger gathering for the Orphan Justice Center. A day full of great people and worthy causes.
Speaking of worthy causes, Benji Nolot and crew at Exodus Cry are working on what appears to be a phenomenal documentary on human trafficking. He showed me a clip from the film a few weeks ago after a meeting and I was blown away – not just by content, but by quality. There’s nothing half-done about this project.
Check out the Nefarious Merchant of Souls trailer…and ask yourself why more people aren’t outraged by the topic of human trafficking.
Tomorrow marks the end of Christmas break – kids head back to school, and work commences on The Compound! I think tomorrow Bruce the Builder (we couldn’t afford Bob the Builder) begins by knocking the wrought iron gate down to make room for the container that will hold the remains of the walls he plans on knocking out. Hopefully I’ll get you some pictures of the whole mess soon.
More coherence in a day or two, I promise.
