recently i took a day and just went away. my goal was to connect with God on a level where there were no distractions, nothing around me that needed my attention. so i turned my phone to “airport” mode, got my Bible, the book “Deep-Rooted in Christ” and my guitar…drove 40 minutes north and ended up at Kensington Metro Park.
this was my view.
pretty amazing. i took this next pic cause i thought it looked sweet.
overall i had a fantastic day…just me and Jesus…talking about how I can become more like Him.
how long has it been since you had some “Jesus Time?”
here are some off-the-cuff-not-well-thought-out reasons i am really enjoying living in Ypsilanti
-there are homeless people, and they’re not ashamed to ask for money. for real, this provides a way for me to help, and it keeps things in perspective
-it’s far from perfect. you can tell the city is being worked on…it’s just not done yet
-it has energy. living in a college town has its benefits.
-it has history. i live in a mansion that used to house the mayor. how cool is that? bill clinton stopped in and ate at Abe’s Coney Island…that’s kinda cool?!
-people are welcoming. so far, this has been my experience.
that’s all for now. might come back for round 3 and give ya more. why do you love where you live?
our ministry had a blanket drive last november. the student leaderhship team built a box to put all the blankets in. it was a kickin’ box. so much so i almost didn’t want to get rid of it. but alas…we did. enjoy this fun little snippet of 3 people destroying a well-built wooden box.

Series: Goin’ all the way
Summary: John 15:13 and 1 John 3:16 lay it out there. [real] love is laying your life down for someone else. Jesus was the example. we are to follow. what does that look like for a high school student? putting ones own agenda aside for another person is certainly difficult, but it is what we are called to do…in every relationship, not just dating/marriage.
Bottom Line: Love is sacrifice
Creative Elements: we showed 2 videos. this one. and that one.
Song List: You’ll come, Lead me to the cross, Better is one day
