Weekend Wrap Up


I had a great weekend. I knew it was going to be, I just had that feeling!


First, as mentioned in yesterday's blog, we got a lot accomplished around the house this weekend.

Second, we had a fantastic day at church today. We began our new series, "Marching to Miracles." Larry was particularly funny today and you just "had to be there" to experience it. I thought worship was pretty off the chain...the choir was hot...it just all came together. And...our friends Jim and Janice were there, as they are now officially here and part of our Northside family. I convinced them to stay for choir lunch although they had to get back home to take their truckload of stuff that just got here today to a storage facility. Speaking of lunch it was a particularly great choir luncheon today. Everyone said they absolutely loved it. We did a homemade soups & sandwiches lunch today, with desserts. A big hit! We always have lunch before choir however usually it's just covered dish dinner style, not an organized menu as it was this time. After we ate we had a FANTASTIC practice. Couldn't believe how fast they learned two songs for Easter. Let me tell you it's going to BLOW THE DOORS OFF THE PLACE and I am SERIOUS.

I came home and Larry and I had a few moments of quiet and then he said, "let's go see a movie" so we took Savanna and went to see Madea Goes to Jail. I'm a HUGE Tyler Perry fan and let me tell you it doesn't disappoint. I laughed until I hurt. I absolutely loved it. I would give some of my favorite quotes from the movie but I don't want to give anything away so I won't. I do have to say at least one thing, and that is that one of the highlights for me is when Madea spoke in tongues in the movie. And yes, I am serious!

Relevant Church doing something...

incredibly RELEVANT!

I just heard some news today that really inspired me. A church here in Tampa, Relevant Church is doing a new thing this month called the "30 Days Sex Challenge." (I've never visited the church but Pastor Trinity - our children's pastor - has visited or has met some people from this church and he was very impressed.) Realizing that this is a major element missing from some marriages (the frequency factor) their lead pastor, Paul Wirth, has issued a challenge for all the married couples to have sex for 30 days in a row. At the same time he has issued a challenge for all unmarrieds to completely abstain from sex. Of course we know the Bible says that those who are unmarried should not have sex in the first place but the point is, a lot of unmarried's aren't obeying the Lord's command to abstain and this is just one pastor's way of trying to get them to see that indeed, there is a better way! (God's way!) At the same time, many married couples are no

What Verbal Abuse is Really Like, and Why We Must Care
Guest Post: Terri von Wood

In my speaking travels, I meet the most amazing people. Some are connections that go beyond just a night or a weekend of preac hing. One day on my journey, I met Terri von Wood, and we immediately clicked and have been friends ever since.  Just a reminder that all of our guest bloggers this week are available to chat with you in the comment section here on the blog or on my facebook page where the blog is also published.   *** People who have never suffered through or witnessed abuse (including pastors) often don't know how to help women in abusive situations. Knowledge is power and it is my belief that if the church understood the prevalence of abuse, help would be made available.  First, we must acknowledge that the divorce rate is the same  in the church as in the world.  Second, we must understand that the 50% divorce rate does not include all the women who are abused but stay because they do not know what else to do or do not have anyone to turn to.  If those women we
