In the middle of what should have been a crazy stressful week, somehow I found some time for a breath and some stillness. I had to preach the sermon, oversee a carwash and dinner on the grounds, all put on by teens, and during all of his I keep (most) of my calm. I give all of the glory to God for what he did Sunday and am amazed that I was able to be a part of it. I love the fact that God uses us. He is more than able to make things happen all on His own but He still chooses to use us to bring glory to Him. And I pray that is exactly what happened. But in all of this, I still set time aside to rest, pray and be still. And I really think that is what God used to get me through it all. So my message to you is: in the mist of the busy chaos, take a break to recognize God, to talk to Him, listen to Him and just be still. God is alive and well and absolutely loves spending time with you. So find a spot, set a time and just be still. It works, believe me.

What can I say? I am still on a "high" from this Sunday were the teens took over church, cooked a dinner for them and washed like 40 cars all by 2:00pm! I am honored to work with such amazing teens and kids. I don't speak in "big church" too often but I get to share God's grace every single week at least two times. If you want to see the message part: hit up our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/discoverync I wasn't overly impressed with my end but the teens rocked y world.
They designed the stage, lighting, helped with the message, put together a band in 3 weeks and even greeted and served all of out visitors. It was truly an amazing weekend. I think that they created an environment where people could truly connect with God, hear His Word, and have faith in His gift of grace.
Thank you to everyone who helped!
