The Big Idea

       I am about 30 pages from the end of The Big Idea by Dave Ferguson.  I started reading this book on Saturday and have had a hard time putting it down.  The synergy and extra time this kind of teaching can provide a church really excites me.  I am working on creating some material…

Read a Book

       Today I am starting to read The Radical Reformission by Mark Driscoll of Mars Hill Bible Church in Seattle, WA.  I have read several of Driscoll’s other books and love listening and watching his sermons online.  My wife and I listened to his series on spiritual gifts on our honeymoon while we drove from…
