If you happen to be reading this and you haven't heard today's message, stop what you're doing right now and listen to this. Today was definitely a good day at BridgeWay and it was a very good day in the Schaeffer house. I preached one of the most passionate messages I've ever preached today, and then went and had Starbucks with my wife (the kids stayed home).

Not a bad day...here's some of what's rollin' around in my big bald head:
  • Did I mention that you need to listen to the message from today?
  • Favorite lines from today:
  • "Jesus saves us all at once, but changes us little by little"
  • "God's 'but' is bigger than your 'but'
  • "Some of you actually think the holes in the knees of my jeans are from praying"
  • The band ripped up "Dream On" by Areosmith
  • It was great to see all the teenagers sitting up front
  • Our teens did a great job raising several hundred dollars during the 30 hour famine
  • Spontaneous applause during the message today at least 3 times...I wasn't the only one fired up today!
  • I love preaching to our congregation.
  • I loved announcing that Matt & Brooke Robinson will be joining the BridgeWay staff in three weeks!
  • I also loved getting to meet some really cool people for the first time, who have been coming to BridgeWay for a few weeks.
  • I love my wife!
  • I love going to Starbucks with my wife!
  • I love going to Starbucks and drinking a grande non-fat mocha with my wife!

Hope to see ya all soon!

    I love my husband!

    I love going to Starbucks with my husband!

    I love going to Starbucks with my husband and drinking something other than coffee! (I've tried really I have, I just don't like it).

    I also love serving in Ministry with my husband. I'm not much of a upfront person, just a people person. I realized Saturday night how much I miss working and spending time with people outside the "church world", because it gives me a chance to build a relationship with them that then opens up a door to talk to them about church!

    I'm also excited about things to come for BridgeWay! These are exciting days; not to steal Dales words, (but I will), "Tighten up your Bible Belt", were in for an exciting ride. Let's see were we can get involved with what God is already doing, and were he is Leading us.
