I have been on a personal retreat since Monday. It has been one of the most fruitful times of personal prayer, ministry planning and visioneering that I have had in a long time. I feel so refreshed. Energized… and ready to re-engage with a new commitment to and enthusiasm for the mission of our church as well as an impassioned excitement about our 2020 Vision. It’s late and I don’t want to spew out stuff before it has time to gel and have other eyes on it. Nevertheless, I’m grateful for this time away, but can’t wait to get back to the family… and to preach the gospel on Sunday for Creekstone Church!
