Go through your closets and bag up the winter stuff you don't need or that your kids have outgrown and bring it Sunday.
I survived my four days in the wilderness. Well, not real wilderness, but as close to roughing it as I like to get. No internet! No cell service! The horror! It was a great time of solitude, silence, study and prayer. I'm feeling refreshed and renewed. I've got a lot to say but I'll get to three points:
1) WINTER CLOTHING DRIVE through October 5 - I scored some great deals at Reny's. Go through those closets. Our 12:30 service brothers and sisters have no idea how cold Maine gets. Let's show them some love.
2) Spiritual Disciplines series begins Sunday. I hope we're all ready to do some stretching and growing.
3) Proactive in our friendships?Commit to plugging into one of our LifeGroups, our breakfast club or our midweek bible study. No one can make you invest in your spiritual growth except for you.
We're heading off for our last family trip to Storyland tomorrow. Our season passes turned out to be a wise Christmas gift! I hope you manage to squeeze in some fun too.
I'm looking forward to seeing everyone on Sunday.
