We just crossed into double digits with SYW 2016 can you believe it? Only 42 more weeks to go until 2017. Click the underlined link to be transported to a great sharing space at Cee’s Blog.
This week Cee has asked us five sharing questions and given us a warning. The warning is
With your answers, please remember we are in the SYW world which may not always match our reality.
The questions are:
What would you ask for if a genie granted you three wishes?
I think I would ask the genie to make me strong enough to cover all the bases that need covering in my section of the human sea of need. I do realize however that genies are quite literal and I would probably be given a huge baseball diamond in the middle of an ocean along with super speed so that I could run on top of the water and thereby cover all the bases. I think I will just continue to ask God for the strength. He gets the metaphor.
What experiences are most meaningful to you?
I love our times around the altar of the church. There is nothing like being in the presence of God.
As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
As a young child I wanted to be a zoo keeper, a naturalist, an ornithologist or something else that would keep me near animals and the natural world. From the eighth grade on though I pretty much knew I was going to be a pastor. It was an innate sense I guess you could say…a calling I couldn’t deny.
Complete this sentence: The best day of my life was….
the day I received Jesus as Savior and Lord. The second best day was the day I received the baptism in the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other tongues.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I am so grateful that our lead pastor, Pastor Risto was back to lead staff meeting last week. He had been away and then had Network staff meetings in Sturbridge . So I was running meetings for a few weeks. This week I am looking forward to ministering in two concerts.
