Well what a week this has been! It’s hard to believe we’re living in a city that has suffered the greatest non-hurricane devastation in history, from a weather-related event. Who could have ever imagined that we’d live to see between 18 and 20 inches of rain in less that 48 hours? But we have and we are, and we’re engaging this crisis with care and compassion.
I just want to let all of you know that The Gathering will be up and running this coming Sunday at 9:00 and 10:30 AM at the Carmike Theaters in the Cool Springs area. We’ll be sharing hope and gathering to thank God for the good things that He’s done.
It’s ironic that this past weekend I was going to be speaking on How to Manage Stress. And even though this weekend is Mother’s Day, I’m going to go ahead and stay with that same talk. I think it’s appropriate for what we’re all going through.
Again, this weekend will be a great time to gather to worship. It also will be a great time to gather your friends and bring them with you, particularly people who have suffered loss. And not just gather together to bemoan and become bitter, but gather together to worship and find reasons to be grateful and reasons to go on.
