We had a terrific day at Memorial Drive. Of course the crowd was big since it is Easter Sunday.
I so look forward to days like this when visitors are abundant. Our day was full of God as the church worked together as a team. Shane did his usual awesome work in creating music which had energy. God gave me a sermon that lived in the moment. But it is the teamwork of the entire church which thrills my heart.
Two of our foster families had the parents of their foster children as guests. And the church welcomed them. I saw it happen. Members invited friends who don't go to church (who don't like church) because they were confident Life in full energy would be present....and it was.
We baptized a woman who once rode on one of our Joy buses as a child years ago.
You should see the new stain-glass murals Nicki McDonald painted for the front of the auditorium.
Everywhere we turn, we find the entire congregation doing a superior job of being alive, friendly to guests, and highly confident God's love transcends each of our days.
