The Wayback Machine: February

Some things just get better with age.  “The Wayback Machine” posts occur at the end of every month and reference the best posts of that month in years past.  My hope is to provide a good jumping on point for readers who have never been to Pursuing Glory.


Come Rest

Back in 2009, my good friend Dick Speight rolled out the first of many books that the Lord has put in him.  He offered me the great joy of writing a foreword for the book.  So when the book hit the shelves in February, I gave a little background on Dick and shared my recommendation for the book.  It’s still a great book that will help many draw away and experience Jesus’ love. I encourage you not just to read the post but to think about picking up a copy.


The House Church We’ve All Been Waiting For

This post was more of a report about what was going on in our house church during its very early stages.  You can tell we’ve definitely progressed beyond some of the issues listed here, but the point is that we were actually meeting God like we intended to.  Check this post out for a glimpse into the good and the bad of what we were early on.

House Church Foundations

This post was a short attempt to sum up where I was feeling the Lord take us three weeks in to our house church.  Four years later, much has changed but so much is still the same.  It’s clear looking back, I wasn’t just trying to start a house church, I was hoping for true apostolic Christianity to emerge.  We’re still contending for that to this day.
