Is Miley Cyrus Really that Relevant?

Yes, today at our second preview service we played a little round of an orignal game called "Relevant/Irrelevant". I'm sorry to say that Miley Cyrus (aka Hannah Montana) is irrelevant along with guys in blue knit sweatervests.

God's presence was real today as our team set up in yet another facility (two for two, not bad) and did an awesome job. We no doubt have the best team on the planet and it is an honor to be starting a church with them.

A long time ago (in church planting years) God told me "Josh, preach the Gospel/Jesus, and I'll take care of the church." I'm going to hold God to his word (I'm pretty sure He's good for it.) and today as the Gospel was preached a room full of followers acknowledge their desire to go deeper with God and two people stepped across the line of faith for the first time!

We are so grateful to God for His overwhelming grace, amazing friendships, and bright future. God is good! We can't wait to do this again next month! (Next preview service is August 17!)

ps - I've noticed that a lot of my posts sound really upbeat and almost too good to be true. This really has been an amazing journey and it really has been this good. Well, and it doesn't hurt that I'm an eternal optimist!
