GA Writing Retreat

GA Writing Retreat

It is a privilege to spend the next four days writing at a lake house in GA courtesy of our friends, Rick and Lynn Mercer. We met Rick and Lynn in the year two of the Indian Creek church plant. They were an important part for nearly five years before moving to Georgia.  We've missed them but stayed connected. God's blessed them and they've been a blessing to others through their generosity. They've often invited us to come and retreat, come and play, come and write. We had a great time with them over the weekend and now we are dedicating the next four days to writing. 

I'm going to rewrite the six messages that go with the Created to Live Sent series. The messages I've been sending to the churches that did the series were the ones we used at the Creek. They were written specifically for that day, time and place. I'm writing messages that will be more universally use-able. I'm sure pastors will do their own thing anyway but this gives them a better run at the hill. There are five churches now using Created to Live SENT in some form or another. I pray it will be a helpful concept for many.

I appreciate your prayers as I write and we retreat. Belinda is revising and improving The Path to Power. Jim Davey and I wrote it together 24 years ago. Sam Stephens told us that it is still his go to plan for discipleship with his new believers in the 70,000+ churches he's planted. It is translated into 5 dialects. He's been using it for 22 years. That is just way cool. I thank God for that. It reminds me to give what you have to God. He can use it an multiply it. We told him he could have all the rights to it if he used it in India. We don't need anything but the satisfaction that something created from our hearts in the U.S. would help fulfill the Great Commission half a world away.
