Trying to put into words what I feel tonight, just 12 hours before the official start of City Community Church. Today was rather surreal, last minute details, loading the truck, special setup times and music rehearsal. I’m not sure the reality of it all has hit me yet. Just thought I’d try and capture a few random thoughts in the moment.
I’m overwhelmed at the love and faithfulness of our team…some we’ve known for years, and others we’ve just met along this new leg of the journey. My kids seem really excited, wired even tonight. I think they’re ready to get back into some sense of normalcy (although they might be terribly mistaken about anything normal on the horizon). It was nice to have a break from the Sunday to Sunday routine, but I think we’re all ready to get back in the swing of things.
Believing for a great start tomorrow. Nathan’s kicking off our very first series: “Imagine.” Don’t know what to expect, but I have this great sense that if we just stay focused on creating encouraging and challenging God-environments, we will somehow be able to create a place that is essential to people’s lives. Only time will tell, and tomorrow is just step one on the journey. Ready or not here we come.
