On Monday 70,000...yes 70,000 college students will be descending upon the Georgia Dome to worship Jesus as King!
Maybe you're going!
But if you're not, you can watch the whole thing on a live stream: Passion 2012 Live Stream
Starting Monday night at 7 pm EST.
I'll be catching as much as I can (in between homeschooling, laundry, and being a mom!)

We often don't share the pain, the yuck, the junk, or the sad things in our life. I am not advocating that we use these social outlets as a chance to bear our souls for shock value or to just to vent.
But those people in our real life, are they seeing us for who we really are? Are we wearing masks to keep up the pretense that all is well?
You know, no one has it all together! No one has a perfect marriage, perfect life, perfect parents, perfect body, perfect anything! We live in an imperfect world. We're sinners...all of us!
I appreciate friendships where there is no "playing", no pretending, but authentic fellowship for the glory of God. May God allow all His people to be in community with others where there's no masks or pretending!

Or Anger? Frustration? Critical words?

We chose to use our church, Christ Community Church, as the back drop for our Christmas card picture, because much of our year was intertwined with our involvement at church.
In February we had the privilege of hosting a marriage conference. That stirred in us a desire to do more marriage ministry and in September we began a class for newlyweds. God has also brought about some deeper ties to the body of Christ we serve and fellowship with at Christ Community Church!
We’ve also been blessed with a trip to Disney World with John’s parents and sister and Thanksgiving in the Dells with Heather’s family. What great memories we made this year with family!
We’ve continued home educating the boys and joined a local group of homeschoolers. The boys have enjoyed making new friends who, to their surprise, also have school at their homes!
Our prayer for the year to come is that we will be more God-honoring, Christ-Centered, and Holy Spirit filled, all for His glory!
John, Heather, Miles, Luke & Clark
