Getting Hitched

I wanted this post to mean more, so I purposefully haven't posted very much. (or I'm just lazy)

I've told mostly everyone who I have an email for and even sent one to people who don't use the same email address anymore.

It's official. For Christmas I gave Kori a diamond ring and a marriage proposal. We're getting married very soon. I'll post more details here later. Thanks to everyone for your prayers and encouragement. I look forward to growing closer to her and to God every day.

Having A Personal Mission

Here we are halfway through December and I haven't even posted yet. I must apologize. I give no excuse. I've sat in front of this computer plenty of times this month and done nothing, getting up without as much as a link or a picture or anything. Sorry.

On that note, I came across this quote in a book I'm reading by Leonard Sweet. He's a big postmodern church/culture proponent and theologian. I thought this quote went along perfectly with what Cascade Hills is doing in Salem. It can also apply to each of us individually.

"The only church that can afford to be indifferent to trends is a church that is not on a mission." ~ Leonard Sweet
Do you have a mission for your life? If we are all the church, each one of us should have one. To completely remove yourself from the world is to seperate yourself from the call that Christ gave when he said "Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone, everywhere. (Mark 16:15)"

For those reading my blog who believe in and follow Jesus Christ, is this a part of your personal mission for your life? For those reading who don't believe, what is your mission for your life?
