Row Row Row your boat...

In the past few weeks I think God has really been working in my heart and trying to push me to see something and try something different. This morning Ty, Rachel, Cameron, Brittany and I all tried something a little different together. We went to a place called Addulam (spelling?). Which I think will be safe to say, is a missional church. Now, all of us are very new to the idea (thanks to Trevor and Mr. Jim) and we walked in this morning not quite sure that to expect. We were welcomed with several very sincere smiles and "hello"s and then we took our seats and listened.

After talking with Ty about what we had heard, I think we can both say that we were convicted, and excited about the idea of getting on the boat no matter what we leave behind. And we should have faith that God will be our oars. For lack of a better outline, I will bullet point my thoughts:
*We live in a selfish world where we feel the need to take care of ourselves before we can help other people. Instead, we should have faith that God will take care of us and provide for us.
*The world is not the same as it was 30 years ago, the church needs to change accordingly.
*We don't always know what our future holds. (we may think we know our dreams and life goals but God won't put those opportunities in front of us if its not right)
*We all have garbage...and we are all full of trash...God loves us anyways. We should see people through God's Eyes, trash included.
*We aren't here to drink pina colada's on the beach...If your in then you better get on the boat!

I am excited and scared for what lies ahead. But mostly excited...I will write more later when I know more
