For the past two days, I’ve felt much like I imagine the apostle Paul felt when he talked of having a thorn in his flesh. I’ve been struggling with some horrible migranes again. I’ve prayed time and again for healing and while the Lord has not chosen at this point to heal me, I have clearly heard Him speaking to my heart, “My grace is sufficient.” And somehow, knowing Him and experiencing His grace is enough.
I’ve got a new favorite blog. I really love to do marketing type things and think that the church as a whole is greatly lacking in the marketing department. ChurchMarketingSucks.com does a great job at not only pointing this out, but also passing along helpful marketing stategies that have worked elsewhere. The more I read, the more I enjoy it. I particularly liked the story about the church who fixed up an old ice cream truck and used it this past summer to pass out free ice cream. What a GREAT idea! I’d go to a church if they gave me free ice cream! Anyway, check it out. It’s a great little blog.
