90 day journey – half way mark

March 31, 2009

This week marked the half way point in our journey!   To confirm, this past Monday (March 30) everyone should be reading on day 49 of the reading plan!   I know that many (including myself) have some catchup to do – lets commit to get caught up and see if we can pull through on our goal!

Another great day of discussion, some comments

  • Amazing how the thoughts and words spoken in the Psalms can so closely match thoughts and feelings we experience today.
  • Great discussion about what our happiness should be based in, how is it defined. 

Have a great week and give all the glory to God!

Great video on “How do I know there is a God”

March 28, 2009

Here is a great video I found on Tangle (previously GodTube) with a well known apologist and philosopher talking about “How do I know there is a God.”  He boils it down to 3 very simple points – well worth watching!

Another great meeting today – Day 29 of 90 days!

March 11, 2009

Another great meeting today – 6 brothers enjoying hot Starbucks and talking about God’s word.  It is incredible to hear how God has been impacting folks as they join this journey!  

Wanted to share some comments & key scripture from today’s discussions:

  • 2 Samuel 19:6 – “You love those who hate you and hate those who love you…” – have you ever done this?
  • 1 Sam 16:15 – “Saul’s attendants said to him, ‘See, an evil spirit from God is tormenting you…’ ” – question raised around what was meant by an “evil spirit from God”…
  • Sometimes answers to our questions are right in front of us and we simply chose to ignore them… pride
  • David & Solomon were not saints, however God held David in higher esteem than He did Solomon, why?

Feel free to add comment about others thoughts from this weeks chapters.
