Palm Sunday Tomorrow

I am loving the current series Famous Last Words.  Tomorrow is Palm Sunday (April 17), so we are going to have a celebration as we start Holy Week.   I am going to teach from Luke 19:28-34, as we focus on the phrase “The Lord needs it.”

Our kids will be having an Easter Egg Hunt in both the 9:00 and 10:45 services.

Also, remember men that tonight (April 16) is Men’s Night at 6:00 p.m.

Sun Stand Still

Steven Furtick is a 31 year old pastor, who has had a lot of success in his short ministry, and should have a lot more in the future.  The sense of optimism and confidence from this success exudes in his first book Sun Stand Still.  This book is great for a young person with big dreams, and an older reader who need to be reminded again what it feels like to dream big.    Furtick is a good writer, so it will be fun for those of us who follow his ministry to watch his writing develop as his life and ministry continue to expand.

On a personal note, I met Futick in 2009 when I was visiting Mac Richard in Austin.   Furtick was a really nice guy, and he gave me some advice that has really helped CIL.
