It often happens that people express interest in the church we're starting in River Market.
It's common for us to invite people to a Saturday night service or a missional community gathering.
And it's not unusual for us to hand out a church card with our website info on it.
But it is unusual for people to take us up on those offers. Said another way, for people to take God up on the offer to go deeper with Him. But we've been praying, and you've been praying, and God answers!
A local bartender finally took us up on the offer to join us for dinner at our place (an offer from last winter). And it was exactly God's timing. He explained how his girlfriend attends a church, but his own history with the church has been painful and confusing.
Yet what he sees in us is something different than his past, and he wants to know more. I'm telling you guys: it's not us that he's seeing! God is irresistible!
Pray for this man and his girlfriend as they begin to follow Jesus together. This is the beginning of a slow and lovely journey: faith.
