In which I quote a sports commentator

 "If you go up for enough marks, you're eventually going to win some and suddenly you'll find you've had 10 marks in the first quarter."

Hop on over to Deb's blog to find out why I love this quote, and am feeling very challenged by it. Hint: It's about evangelism.

The greatest movie ever assembled

That's right, coming in 2014, from everyone's favourite source of acrylonitrile butadiene styrene:

The Lego Movie

Petrina was skeptical when I first told her about it, but after watching the trailer, she's sold.

Now the only question is which will be the best 2014 release: The Lego Movie, or part III of The Hobbit...

SP now kisses his own bumps and scrapes.

Evangel... what?

Yes, I do know the difference between Evangelical and Evangelistic. Previous post has been corrected of error. 

If you don't know, don't worry about it :) I vividly remember being corrected about 10 years ago when all that language was brand new to me. What I wanted to convey is that SP gets that non-Christians don't get to be with God forever, so he's keen to help them know about Jesus.

Heaven and hell

We've since had lots of little conversations about people needing to trust Jesus to go to heaven etc etc etc etc. I think SP now has a pretty good grasp of it. And his evangelistic fervor has increased as a result. 

Then this comes from the back sheet of the car:

"When we're in heaven, we might go down to hell to see Goliath."

One-to-one High

I've just spent the evening with a lovely young woman from church. We don't know each other well, despite being at the same small church for 3 1/2 years. I don't seem to have the knack of turning 'how's your week been?' into a decent conversation.

But there's something powerful about opening the Bible together. Even with a random passage selection, starting the conversation with God's word leads to opening our hearts to each other. 

This is why I love one-to-one ministry. I'm sad that I've let it slip from my life the past few years, but I'm excited that it's back.
