It's Been One Week

It is hard to believe that we have been in harrisburg, PA for a full week. As we have settled in, let me give you a recap of our week.

* Sore muscles from loading the trucks in 100 degree heat in Van Wert, Ohio. (Thanks to all who helped)

* Cramps as we sit all day driving to Harrisburg

* Overwhelmed by people helping unload the truck in Harrisburg

* Moving furnitre and unpacking

* Grocery Shopping and finding our way as we make 20 trips to the various stores...

* Relaxing by the pool...(it's not all work and no play)

* Learning the culture of a new area

* First exponential staff meeting


Our family has loved our first week in Harrisburg. As we go places (the grocery store, mall, lowes, farmers market)we see around us people who need a relationship with Christ. Keep us in your prayers as we seek to bring "up there, down here."

Yesterday at Calvary Church one of the greatest statements I have heard was quoted. "The church should reform and always be reforming" (1500's) As a leader, I am always looking at how the church should reform, the question is what is the guide for the reformation of the church. The guides people use are results, feelings, tradition and the list could go on and on.

As a leader, I want to make sure that the transformation that takes place in based on the principles found in the Word of God.

As we begin this week on a journey of reforming the way church is done, I want to make sure that we evaluate the reformation we are participating in by the World.
