Back in the saddle

It's been a long time since I've opened up my blog to share myself with the world. We made it through Christmas. God is good.

I am so impatient to be done with school and plant a church. Stan Granberg was here yesterday meeting with people in Memphis to discuss church planting. He met with our church to encourage them to plant a daughter church and to answer questions they have about that process. Then he came to a meeting for Harding Grad students interested in church planting.

I described it to other people that it was like I was hearing William Wallace's speach before the battle at Stirling (Braveheart reference).
"Aye, fight and you may die, run, and you'll live... at least a while. And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willin' to trade all of that from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take away our lives, but they'll never take our freeeedoooomm."
And I just want to shout and bang my sword on my shield and run into battle!

Ok, ok; I'm a nerd. I admit it. Fine.

Very nice. By the way, nice pics and articles in the Christian Chronicle. Those guys must be weirdos to just go somewhere and start a church from scratch.

So when are you going to write a book JAMES?
