A Short Update

Things around this blog have pretty much been a ghost-town since the election ended. I feel like I have a lot of thoughts about things but not much clarity from the Lord on any of it. Rather than posting whatever I feel, I’m going to wait. Thankfully the Lord is beginning to save me from by big, fat, internet mouth.

There are lots of things going on that are good right now. I really feel like the house church is in a very positive place. We’re all beginning to catch a little bit of the vision that God has for us as a family and as part of a larger movement that will culminate with the return of Jesus. I’m testing the waters with Jesus about the possibility of going to Ethiopia in June with my friend John. God is stirring the water several different ways in my job as well.

I think this blog is up for a little remodeling as well. You may notice I have a new avatar.  I’ve become increasingly concerned with the abilities Web 2.0 gives to anyone whose interested to monitor what I and those around me are doing.  Because of that, I removed my face and replaced it with this snappy picture.  However, on a happier note, this picture is said to be of a Canadian farmer rejoicing at sunset because of the greatness of the harvest in front of him.  My hope is this picture is in reality prophesying where this thing is going.  I’m also hoping to develop a resource page where I can host different teachings, books, and equipping files that will strengthen the apostolic church I believe the Lord is raising up in this hour.  While there is absolutely nothing there, you can check out the beginnings of it here.

Finally, the Lord has been speaking to me about continuing to write and publish and develop relationships around the themes that I talk about frequently here.  Part of that will be me trying to get significantly better at describing what exactly it is we’re called to as an end-time church planting movement.  If that doesn’t excite you, that’s okay, I’ll publish other stuff as well.  But if it does, feel free to drop in, say hi, or get involved in the discussion.

And finally, to those of you who I’ve been bad at staying in touch with, I’m working your way.
