By the way, I took this picture with the built in digital camera on my new laptop…sweet!
We had a great weekend with David Hartman from Shevet Achim, a ministry in Israel that connects Jewish doctors with Muslim children who need heart surgeries. We did an interview/sermon with him Sunday morning in our church and then he preached at a friend’s church in Arabi, Georgia last night. David is involved in an incredible ministry in Israel. You can listen to the interview on the NEW Cornerstone Church website. We are going live this week, so I am now advertising the new site. Go to: www.cornerstoneamericus.com/sermons
We will have our iTunes account set up soon, so you can start getting our podcast downloaded weekly…..sweet!
We are getting ready to launch our Men’s Fraternity at the church next month. MF is a men’s small group that includes large group study and small group time where men can “man up” on each other. Our study for this year will be “The Quest for Authentic Manhood.” We will be meeting at 7:30 am Sunday mornings (not sweet), but it will be good to call the men together so we can challenge each other to grow up and be a MAN! My slogan through the launch of Men’s Fraternity is going to be – Don’t be a sissy! Join the Fraternity!
I am continuing my study of 1 Corinthians this week. I am preaching from 1 Corinthians 4 this Sunday. I just read that we (as church leaders) are “the scum of the earth” (1 Cor. 4:13). Nice text. It really shoots holes in all of that “positive mental attitude” talk in the church. This verse would make a great leadership study for pastors in America. Instead of twenty ways to attract new people to your church, how about “Twenty Reasons Why We are the Scum of the Earth.”
Well, I might look like Robert Ford, but I feel just like a Jesse James.
