A letter to you.
"...perhaps you were born for such a time as this." Esther 4:14
AH DANG. You guys are incredible. Putting this together for you made me so excited for what's to come, everything that we will get out of this next season and how much we will GROW... BUT praying for each of you and just talking with Jesus- I realize how amazing and valuable each of you ALREADY are. There is so much more to come, BUT Jesus has already brought you SO FAR. Through this season, my ONE hope is for us to be transformed by Jesus. I don't just want you to read the Bible just to read the Bible- I want you to be transformed as you see Jesus in the Bible. I don't want us to serve our community or our church just because it's the right thing- I want us to live out what Jesus lived out because He is the most beautiful person we can imitate. I don't want to encourage you to dream big and set goals for your life just because- I want to show you that the dreams God placed in you are worth chasing because Jesus is worthy of EVERYTHING. I want us to be fascinated by the person and work of Jesus Christ so that it transforms who we are and what we do.
I love each of you deeply, and want you to know I care for YOU more than I care about the schedule, the assignments and the entire idea of The Visit. I'm not just trying to get you to do "my thing," because "my thing" has always been about people first. About YOU first.
I'm honored and thrilled to have you be a part of this. FOR REAL.
And now...the adventure begins. Are you guys ready?!
