Tonight we met with all the students to introduce the new direction for our ministry. Getting out into the community is the first step for this process of change. My prayer for the students is true spiritual formation and growth in the Lord. It’s weird how much growth can take place in coffee shops. They are God’s special gift to pastors. Our students will be in the Word studying the Gospel of Mark. It’s an interesting book; I’m not sure what we’re gonna talk about when we get to snake handling and drinking poison, but we’ll roll with it. Maybe we’ll do a fear factor thing I dunno. Joking, but it is one of those passages in the Word where you have to really dig and find out just what the heck this is saying. There will definitely be some wrestling going on this semester. Refer to Mark 16:15-18. Whatcho talkin’ bout Jesus?
