back in the saddle at quest

After a three month sabbatical, my family and I return to Quest Church this Sunday.  Hope to see all the Questers there and invite any Seattle blog stalkers, lurkers, visitors, and transplants to stop by for a visit.  Quest meets on Sundays at 9.15am, 11am, and 5pm and small community groups that meet throughout the week and throughout the city.

We had the great joy of planting Quest nearly eight years ago.   Every three years, the church grants me a sabbatical.  This was my 2nd sabbatical during my time at Quest.  I made one of the most idiotic and bonehead decisions three years ago during my first sabbatical.  The church asked me to take three months off but I said that I needed only two. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

Anyways, I’m back in the saddle beginning this Sunday at Quest.  I hope all the Questers enjoyed the teaching team this summer and their well mannered hand motions, and of course,  the shorter sermons.  That was my personal gift to you. 

I’ve been working out my hands and you won’t be disappointed with my new hand movements, gyrations, and motions.  Couple things to note: The next two weeks, I’ll be preaching about Personal Vision and Ministry Vision.  After that, we’ll be continuing our study through the book of Acts.  Currently, we’re on Chapter 14. 

Thanks for the opportunity for this extended sabbath-ical and the privilege of being a pastor amongst pastors at Quest.

I'm no fan of prosperity theology, prayer of jabez, or the anointed lure...unless it involves fishing. Then, I'm all about it. 
Bless me, Jesus! #DoublePortion Gone fishing. First monster bass.

Going offline to train for the World Bass Championships. See you all next week. Grateful. Enjoying a moment with my earthly father and my Heavenly Father. Road trip continued.
Mountains are awesome. Road trip. Epic clouds. Oceans.
