Record turnout for a Living Stones Church Discovery Class.

My favorite part is always going around the room and hearing the stories of people’s religious background and how they heard about and came to the Living Stones Church.

Tonight we had people whose religious backgrounds included:   two Unitarians and two Serbian-Orthodox (I’m not kidding…when the second mentioned he grew up Serbian-Orthodox too I thought he was just being funny..serious as a heart attack!!), Mormon, Jehovah Witness, Catholic, Nazarene, Pentecostal, Baptist (Southern & Fundamental Independent), Presbyterian, Methodist, and my favorite…no church background at all…first experience is with Living Stones.

I have never seen a church of such a diverse background come together for a common vision and purpose.  It is truly crazy.

It was an awesome group of people.

They are beautiful.

They downed 12 pizzas.  That was beautiful too. 🙂

Perhaps Against My Better Judgment

Posted: August 25, 2009 in Uncategorized

Dear “Sam I Am” blog reader.  Sometimes I tread a fine-line between funny and appropriate.  As you may well know…I pretty much live my life on this line.  This posting may be against my better judgment.  Not sure who all reads this blog…but my little sister sent this to me as a possible blog video claiming that this was true.  I have my doubts.  If you offended, you can blame my sister.  In fact, send her an angry fiery e-mail here.  (Her name is Sarah)

Thank You Jesus

After years of the “pepto-bismol pink” with brown trim…a new look!!  The Annex…renamed “The Pit” (the gathering space for our middle and high schoolers) is getting a fresh new look.

Thank you to some dudes who have recently found they have more time on their hands than they would like…thanks for investing it at LSC!!
