We really are spoilt as a Church with all that comes to us. Last Friday and Saturday was the Willow Creek Global Leadership DVD Summit - a huge thank you to everyone involved in serving at that event - the feedback we've had so far seems to be that it was the best Summit we've hosted so far. I'm very keen we focus on Bill's questions from his opening session - "What does God want our church to look like 5 years from now". I'd be very interested in anyone's thoughts about the answer to that question - email me here with your thoughts.
This Saturday is the Christians Against Poverty (CAP) Inspire Supporters Event in The Kerith Centre. Not too late to register to come along - or I'm sure they'll let you in if you turn up on the door - but you didn't hear that here :-) I heard a great story yesterday from Andy Jackson who runs our CAP centre. Someone was driving through Bracknell and saw all the AA signs that are up directing people to the event on Saturday. They were so intrigued that they looked up CAP on the internet and then got in touch with Andy to find out what it was all about - very cool.
Then on Sunday morning John Kirkby, the founder of CAP, is speaking at our morning meeting. John is one of the most inspiring people I've ever met. His passion for the poor is is just infectious - not to be missed! You'll also get to see the latest video testimony which Paul Harker has produced - the quality of what Paul and Jacqui Webber-Gant are producing as the heart of the media team is just going up and up so look forward to that too.
In the evening we've got Lyndon Bowring of CARE - another speaker of international repute whom we're so fortunate to have with us.
Ps 92:13-14 says "The righteous will flourish like a palm tree, they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon; planted in the house of the LORD, they will flourish in the courts of our God." Choose to plant yourself in the house of God this weekend!
Hope to see you at some point over the weekend.
