Preachin the Word, Preachin the Word

Well, I preached today at church in all three services. Most folks I’ve ever preached in front, about 2500 or so. Why do we have to call it “preaching?” Sounds to formal. Anyway, it went well. I had good response and I got to talk about our church plant some. Shared our vision of going into Uptown Charlotte and people really responded to that. It’s amazing how much more of a response we’ve gotten since God’s given us the vision for Uptown. It would seem nobody could get excited about one more suburban church (including us) but they’re gathering around this new vision. It’s pretty incredible seeing God move in all this. So anyway, this morning went well. I realized I’m out of practice. Preaching/teaching really is work, and I can tell I’m out of the routine, but at the same time I HAD to rely on God (go figure huh?). So good stuff. The youth worship team led this morning too. I love watching young people worship God, and besides they know how to rock. I’ve always said, if Pink Floyd ever led worship…

    benjamin,
    right off you know who’s writing this response,(your whole name)!!
    daddy and i were so blessed to be in the congregation as
    you preached june 17th. What a Father’s day gift ad early birthday gift for daddy.
    i have known for so many years that this was where you belonged…you have grown and developed into such a fine young man, a true man of God.
    it did not look like you were out of practice or the routine. and yes isn’t it AMAZING how that relying on God works!!
    and i agree it is wonderful to watch youth praise and worship simply because they are so real and full of the passion God asks of all of us…He really deserves nothing less.
    you are going to be fine, just keep our eyes and ears where they need to be…give Him the time not only you need to give Him but the time He needs from you. and by the way I will be right behind Casey if you begin to waiver!
    God bless you and we love you.
    mom
