finished – sort of

my moleskineI FINISHED IT! well kind of. i’ve been struggling with the dnow material for about a month now. mainly it was because i just couldn’t figure out where it was supposed to go. i’m in one of those times right now that when i pray begging GOD for guidance HE just responds with a chuckle and says “nope! I’m not gonna tell you right now.” it sure does make for a struggle writing stuff when GOD decides to do that. the good side is that for some reason those times always help my relationship with HIM. the other part of the writing struggle has been tons of distractions but truthfully i live for distractions and usually consider the distractions some of the best ministry opportunities so i can’t really complain.

anyway, i have finally gotten all four studies and general themes into a word document. now i have to proof them and get them in the desktop publisher with all those nice graphics and images. that’s the easy part though.


event blog

march 11-13 we will have our annual discipleNOW. for those who don’t know what a dnow is it’s basically a small group retreat in people’s homes with large group worship added each night. our have traditionally been wonderful because it’s a good way for allot of people to connect intimately with others (on of the former participants reads this blog and he can correct me if i’m wrong). this year i decided to see if the world of blogging could help us with the dnow (i decided this a little late but hopefully it will still work). we’ve set up a blog for all of our leaders to be involved with. this way we can get ideas and such out to them but they can also comment on and improve upon those ideas. everyone seems excited about it. now we just have to see if it’s worth the effort. if it works i’ll probably start doing one for each of the larger things we do during the year.

here’s the blog if you want to follow it’s progress towards being effective or being a waste of time.
