I sometimes catch myself thinking that not much has happened this year at actionchurch… We’ve only had one “test drive” service… I find myself thinking that “next year” after we launch (2.10.08) is when it will all “happen”.
When I catch myself thinking like that I’m gonna smack myself in the forehead! (Ouch!) At this time last year actionchurch was little more than a crazy idea and a really great logo. Just one year later I am amazed at how that idea has spread! I am so thankful for the people who have given their time and energy to develop a church for those who “don’t like church”. I am so thankful for the people who have given their money to help us purchase equipment and tools we need to create a place where those who feel disenfranchised by religion will feel welcomed. I am thankful for the crew at Fat Daddy’s for sharing their club and allowing it to become a church on Sunday mornings. I am thankful for the ways we have been able to serve our community even before we are “officially” a church. I am thankful for people I barely know who are now promoting and inviting people to this “crazy idea” we call actionchurch. I am thankful for the sacrifices my “girls” have made to allow me to participate in what I feel is an opportunity of a lifetime to bring something needed to our community. Most of all I’m thankful that there is a God who specializes in using common, flawed peopled to do extraordinary things… Wow, 2007 has been an amazing year…I can’t wait to see what happens in 2008
