Coffee Shop Outreach

Tina had a great post yesterday on what went on at her coffee shop.  The relational element permeates pretty much all we do here, and the hopefully not-very-hidden agenda is that we desire that everyone we come in contact with hears the gospel and responds to it.  Check out Tina's post HERE.

Yesterday was the fourth straight day we did a prayer walk around our neighborhood.  Initially the plan was to just do it this week, but there's talk about extended it, making it a regular (if not daily) part of what the church does here.  Good idea.

Daniel and David are loving football.  Yesterday I was able to watch one of their practices for a while.  I took a total of nine kids, counting our two boys, to football practice yesterday, all of them neighbor kids.  It all started with our kids.  Yes, they are quite social!  I told the coach that he should give us a discount.  Cheaper by the dozen.

Quote of the Day:  Every saved person this side of heaven owes the gospel to every lost person this side of hell.  We owe Christ to the world--to the least person and the greatest person, to the richest person and to the poorest person, to the best person and to the worst person.  We are in debt to the nations.  Encompassed with this debt, though, in our contemporary approach to missions, we have subtly taken ourselves out from under the weight of a lost and dying world, wrung our hands in pious concern, and said, "I'm sorry, I'm just not called to that."  David Platt, Radical
