I saw this on Anderson Cooper 360 – the waving goat.  It is great!  Another animal video – gotta love those animal videos!





A memorable month…

3 06 2009

The last month our church has taken part in What if the Church and the whole concept started last year when three churches in the KC area got  together and thenn this year more than 10 churches got together had sermons/messages on loving mercy,  act justly, and walking humbly with your God and we then had a serve day which I could not take part in due to exhaustion and being sick the day of the event.  Tonight was the final event and it was the Worship Night where the different churches led us in worship, prayer, and communion.  It was fantastic…one of the people from Westside  toke a picture of the crowd….

 

Here it is….

God of This City

LORD, MAKE US ONE! MAY GOD DO GREATER THINGS IN KC AND  LET THE CHURCH BECOME ONE IN MISSION – to reach the hurting, to reach the poor, to reach the single mom, to reach the drug addict, to reach those who don’t have a relationship with him.  Let us love mercy, act justly, and walk humbly with our God.

WHAT IF?  what if 12 churches mutiplies by 4 next year again -48 local churches?  What if we had a serve day and thousands came out?  A dream yes but God can do more than we can ask or imagine….





One million dolllars…

1 06 2009

I was thinking about what I would do if I had a million dollars handed to me…

Here is what I would do and it is in the order that I would do it…

  • 250,000 to my local church
  • 200,000 to buy a nice home
  • 25,000 to buy a car (my Ford Escape my dream car)

That is 475,000. 525,000 left

  • 25,000 for an emergency fund
  • 200,000 invest

That is $700,000…now what…I still have 300,000.

  • I would give some money to single moms who are having a hard time getting started ($25,000)
  • I would give some money to our mission partners around the globe ($25,000)
  • I would start a college ministry that would train college students to do ministry and rock their world! I have no idea how much I would put towards this since this age is near and dear to my heart! ($50,000 maybe)

Wow, I still have plenty of money…$200,000 left

  • Okay, so I would have some fun with the money – travel to Florida, travel to Washington DC, travel to California, travel to the Grand Camyans again, go on some cruises ($20,000)
  • I would suprise my family and help them with paying off their houses and cars (that would be the rest of it).

What would you do if you got handed $1,000,000?  I invite comments!
