A Whirlwind Week

This past week has been a flurry of meetings, emails, phone calls and reports. With the weekend at hand, I’m looking forward to some downtime hanging out with the family and relaxing… granted, Sunday is just around the corner, meaning that I better figure out what shape this week’s sermon is going to take…

In the meantime, I wanted to post some pictures of my recent trip last weekend to New Jersey and Manhattan. While the goal and focus of the trip was to discuss ways to help churches engage in cross-cultural church planting (both domestically and international), my host, Craig Simonian, was kind enough to take me into Manhattan for a trip of a life time.

Garry Ingraham, Executive Director at Love & Truth Network, delivered a great sermon on how we are made in the image of God for more than simply surviving. Two teenage gals decided to follow Jesus during the ministry time – after being prayed for by a few of their Jesus-freak peers.
