So, let me start by saying that I felt the message yesterday, brought home the messages of the past sessions, related to why Shoal Creek exists.
I speak only for me, as this is coming from my heart.
I think you have to dig deep to “get it” and maybe you have to be as fed up with “organized religion” as I was, when we joined this mission (not church).
For me…….this is exactly what Dorothy and I needed to start our healing and get past the pain of losing our friends when we left “organized religion”.
It was sooooooo tuff and we aren’t completely healed yet, but let me tell you, the thing about this past group of messages is that for me, it gave me purpose.
The big picture is coming into focus I don;t want to “Waste my Life” but I have to keep it real and slow down and learn a little at a time, I’m human and i will falter.
For Dorothy and I that means getting some help (that’s what we got from the skit ourselves….connecting with those that have walked in our shoes) and we think small groups is our next step. We want to learn to touch God and truly understand what Jesus wants from us and that will start by getting into the bible.
Not so easy for folks that were told what they were to think for soooooooo many years (by organized religion). But we are working on it!
One last reminder to register your Spring semester group. I will be printing the Spring Group Sign-up for this coming Sunday sometime this afternoon.
Praying for you and Gabby. I wish I had help along side me with my Ashlyn who is 15 and special needs, too.
