Amazingness ahead!

Margaret, Candy, Chris, Savanna and Taylor  hitting the streets at the Prayer Blitz yesterday

Yesterday was great and I can hardly wait to see what will happen today!  We had a prayer outreach where a bunch of us from Celebration went out into the community to simply knock on doors and say, "We're from Celebration Church and are out in the neighborhood today to just introduce ourselves and ask if there is anything we can pray with you about..."

Amazing things happened!  In one case, Candy and Chris saw a lady walking in a neighborhood with seven children.  Yes, seven!!!  Some were even babies, and she had no stroller or anything.  They found out she not only needed prayer, she also needed food.   Candy invited her to pile everyone in the car and let her take them to Celebration to our recovery service which is also a  food and clothing ministry.  She agreed.  She  and the children came and got a meal and groceries for the week, and most importantly when she heard the message, she responded and accepted Jesus as her Savior!!  Then Candy and Chris drove her and the children home.  They also quickly arranged a ride for the lady and the seven kids today for church.  Right then and there, CC, just grew by eight more people.

That's just ONE story from yesterday -- there were quite a few miraculous ones.  God is so good!  We came back to the church after the community prayer blitz, and shared an Italian meal and testimonies.

There's no telling what will happen TODAY especially as we just let God have HIS way!

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

This Could Have Ruined Everything... (But It Didn't!)

 No one would ever guess what happened to me this weekend in Jacksonville, Florida...so I'm going to tell you. :) As I was preaching at the Fearless Tour at New Hope Assembly of God this weekend,  I got choked up, literally. For probably 2-3 minutes I coughed profusely and greatly struggled. Then I drank some water and kept preaching. Everyone was gracious to give me a few moments to get my bearings. If you were there, you'll remember it! What no one realized at the time was that I swallowed a bug that flew right in while I was preaching! So disgusting! I said nothing because I was at a point in the sermon where I was really connecting and I knew if I said, "I swallowed a bug," everyone would either laugh profusely or be really concerned, or start feeling sorry for me.  And at that point whey wouldn't be thinking about the message anymore, but the fact that I had just swallowed a bug. They would then imagine what it would be like, and feel grossed out which

Why You Should Never Hijack a Comment Thread
Social media etiquette 101

One surefire way to kill your influence in social media and wear out your welcome fast is to become involved in derailing somebody’s comment thread with your own agenda. Networking and hijacking aren’t the same thing. It’s surprising how many people don’t understand that this is a guarantee for tearing down a platform as quickly as you build it. Passion is good, even necessary. I appreciate people's zeal for their personal core values. What is not appreciated is the attempt at a redirection of a comment thread when the comment has little or nothing to do with an original post or is twisted at best. Social media provides ample opportunity for all of us to share what’s important to us on our own platform. Eliciting others’ responses and developing connections largely depends on our ability to communicate and compel. Some people are open to receiving private communication from others although they aren’t always able to answer personally or at length. But hijacking a comment threa
