after grill

the grill party for the homeless was awesome... but man, i'm beat. it went from 3 till 10:30pm. i would guesstimate we had 20 guests. the food was EXACTLY the right amount- all the meats and salads and cakes were eaten and no one left hungry. we were able to make a few new acquaintances and deepen some of the existing relationships. there is something different about having guests in your own (gospel tribe) back yard. they are opener than at werderplatz.

i spoke... my topic was amos. anyone surprised? cate chose a minor prophet *gasp* ok, so i am predictable. i thought this would be a message they havent heard before (i was right), that it was relevent (talks about God's unhappiness at israels treatment of the needy) and that it would open their eyes to the Love of God (yeah mom, i got your email... odd, i'd already written my sermon!). i was encouraged because they seemed to be listening (i even threw in a non-rhetorical question and got 3 answers), and a lady asked several good questions after.

i am excited about our next grill party in two weeks.. wonder what i'll preach on... *coughminorprophetcough*
and about gospel tribe in general and the way things seem to be going there...
