Sorry I’ve been AWAL. God had a crazy curveball for me recently. Short version: my internship in CO was nearing its end. And just as I was about to pack up the end and drive East, the pastor offered me a 1 yr contact. I’m serving w/ college in-reach and outreach. Honestly, it’s been crazy. I was ready to go and plans redirected. Please pray I readjust and serve, shepherd and share Jesus well.
I’ve been studying Galatians lately. Our group is studying “walking in the Spirit. ” The Spirit can b a tough study. But I’m learning how a born-again person lives, not to be saved but bcz he is. It’s a struggle to walk like this, but we will always struggle w/ the flesh. I’ve learned the non-Christian celebrates his sin, but the Christian simply struggles.
We will start True Fellowship (now republished as True Community) by Bridges in 2013. And the church will study Ephesians. Both should b good studies.
