Friday Hot StuffPosted: July 3, 2009
Here’s some HOT stuff for you on a HOT 4thof July weekend…
- The next several weeks are going to be crazy as we move closer and closer to finally and officially launching Awaken Church (September 13 baby!). Next week, we’ll be announcing a HUGE community event, a serving initiative, and…drumroll…rolling out a fresh, new, official website. Exciting stuff!
- You need to stop what you are doing right now and watch David Platt’s sermon from the SBC Pastors Conference. Easily, one of the most important, most powerful, and most prophetic sermons I have EVER heard. David is 30 years old and pastor of The Church at Brook Hills in Birmingham, AL.
- While you’re there, watch Francis Chan’s message, too. He can drop hammers all day long because he reeks of (in a good way) authenticity and humility. My favorite hammer from his sermon was, “I’m sick of being ALMOST biblical.” That’ll preach!
- Speaking of Francis Chan, did you know you can download the audio version of his book, Crazy Love, for FREE on christianaudio.com? Well, you can. And, you should. Fabulous book!
- Awaken Church is going to party, party and celebrate the oft-forgotten about 5th of July on Sunday afternoon! If you’re in Columbia…or not…and want to eat burgers, swim, play kickball, throw the frisbee, and you’re okay with the possibility of getting hit with a water balloon, then come on out! Gonna be fun!
Happy 4th of July to you and to America!
