since tapestry does not formally (i.e. legally) exist yet we don’t have members (it’s kind of hard to have members in something that doesn’t yet exist) but as of today we have our first person joining us on the journey whose last name is terrell. i’ve been meeting people for the past four months, talking and listening with people concerning what they believe the bride of CHRIST (the church) is supposed to be like, and sharing with them what i feel called to do. a couple of weeks ago i asked a few people to pray about joining us on the journey. today the first one said “yes.”
there are a couple of other people who are thinking and praying over things at the moment and a bunch more that i am continuing to talk with. within the next three weeks pam and i are going to start meeting with, eating with, praying with, reading the acts of the apostles with, and discussing with a group of people who will hopefully commit to joining with us on starting the church that we believe GOD has called us to start. we’ll do this on sunday nights for 5-6 weeks and then start taking our next steps.
SIDE NOTE – at present the terrell family is living through its first classified blizzard ever. the wind chill outside is presently -25º and is supposed to reach as low as -45º tomorrow. thankfully i’m inside.
