Lion Chasing

I'm not sure who all reads this blog. Some of you I knew before I left to start this church. Others of you are new connections and are involved in this with me. No matter who you are, I want to let you in on something.

It's time to turn a corner. Since we hit the ground in September until now we have been in a gathering season, gathering resources, gathering people for the team. We have one last Pre-Launch Gathering tomorrow night (Jan 6, 5pm, Macomb Township Recreation Center). Pray that the vision will be clear, that God moves, and that the team begins to feel the excitement of where God is taking us.

These are critical times. It's no easy thing that we're doing. Starting a new church looks glamorous, but it's one of the most spiritually challenging things a person could do. Why would we expect it to be any different. Anything worth fighting for isn't going to be easy. But just think of what COULD be... and what SHOULD be! We're chasing lions, and I wouldn't have it any other way.
