I feel like I am always saying, “it’s been a crazy few weeks,” and it has been! I am so excited about God’s work through the Elephant series and loved having elephants at our Norman Campus a few weekends ago. It was amazing to see the community that took place before and after discussions about a tough subject.
I appreciate your grace and understanding as I spent time with my family OU/TX weekend. Pastor Adam delivered an incredible, God-breathed message about war, and then again about Ephesians 3 when I unexpectedly caught pneumonia. We will finish up the Elephants series this Sunday. I am going to teach about the God of our pain and how to make sense of the pain we go through .
I’ve been blown away by God’s faithfulness so far this semester as He guides us through JC 1360 and other incredible conversations about being healthy and stewarding His blessings to transform cities. I am privileged to serve a body of believers who appreciate my transparency about the health challenges I walk through. Please remember, I am healthy, but susceptible to sickness just like all of you! My body needs extra rest to heal and I try to steer clear of people who are sick so that I don’t complicate things for my immune system. Although Robin and I have had a tough week of pneumonia and bronchitis, we are on the mend, and trusting in the healing power of God who is providing energy and vision for His Kingdom each and every day.
Thank you for your prayers and encouragement! Go to the doctor and rest when you’re feeling ill. It wouldn’t hurt to keep a can of lysol at your fingertips also!
See you Sunday,
