Celebrating Independence!

Holiday week…..celebrating our nation’s independence….so no meeting this Friday.  We’ll gather NEXT Friday, July 10th over Zoom beginning at 7:30 am ET.

The 6-week Study Guide is now posted on the Resources page of this website.  Be sure to read the homework for “Lesson 1” which includes reading the first four chapters of “Run with the Horses”.

Have a great rest of the week!  I’ll see you next Friday!

Peace!

Run with the Horses…..!

Hopefully, most of you got the message that we’ve selected “Run with the Horses” by Eugene Peterson as our next study series.  This week, we’ll gather via Zoom to introduce the new book.  Next Friday is July 3rd, and we will not be meeting since it’s a holiday weekend.  And “week 1” of the new series will officially start on Friday, July 10th, again over Zoom.

“Run with the Horses” came with many recommendations.  Personally, I love how it aligns nicely with the book of Jeremiah.  More specifically, as it relates to the book title, the author shares:

“If you’re worn out in this footrace with men, what makes you think you can race against horses?”

Jeremiah 12:5

Join me this Friday over Zoom where I’ll introduce the book and the author.  You won’t need the book this week…but you will when we gather on July 10th.  Order the book through Amazon and be sure to purchase the “commemorative edition” since it has the 6-week study curriculum included.

A Time for Rest…..and Reflection….

Can you believe we’re nearly to July??  The summer is flying by….!

We’re taking a break from our men’s gathering this week….I encourage you to rest and reflect on our most recent study, “Sticky Faith”, and take some time to consider our next one!  We’ll gather again on Friday, June 26th, to check-in and discuss ideas for the next men’s study.  Come with your ideas and best “sales pitch”…!  Ha!

The following Friday will be July 3rd and we won’t meet then as it’s the front edge of the Independence Day holiday weekend.  New study will begin on Friday, July 10th.

Lots of opportunities for prayers in our lives today…..between the global pandemic and community unrest with racial tensions…..I encourage you to talk with God daily, pray for our world, and for our communities.

Enjoy the week off!  I’ll see you over Zoom on the 26th!

Peace!

Let’s Talk About It

Lot’s going on in our country and sometimes our men’s group gets so deep into our current study that we lose sight on talking about some of the current issues impacting our communities and our world.

So, this week, we’re taking a “pause” and doing a simple fireside chat (minus the fire).  I’ll kick things off, but there’s no real agenda.  I’ll put the ball in play, and let’s see where the discussion leads us.

I’m not assuming, however, that we will one-hundred percent agree.  But my hope is that we’ll find common ground, with God’s grace, and see what our individual “calls to action” are going forward.

Zoom meeting information shared below.  Sending out passcode in separate calendar invite.

Game Show Friday!!??

Buckle in gents….this week we’ll wrap up our current study of  “Sticky Faith” in grand fashion!  I’ve prepared an online quiz game (called Kahoot!) to make our wrap up both informative and fun.

Nothing needed to prepare ahead of time.  I’ll share a URL in the morning for the game.  Please try to have your laptop handy to play along.

Zoom meeting information is below.  Password will be shared via calendar invite.  (Reach out to me if you need that password otherwise.)
