Great Quotes: a bit from everywhere.

July 8, 2007

“I might believe in the Redeemer if His followers looked more Redeemed.” Fredrick Nietczshe

“In some sense we are all hypocrites in transition.” Erwin McManus

“Preach the gospel everyday, use words only when necessary.” St. Francis of Assissi

“Out of 100 men, one will read the Bible, the other 99 will read the Christian.” D.L. Moody

“Any concept of grace that makes us feel more comfortable sinning is not biblical grace. God’s grace never encourages us to live in sin, on the contrary, it empowers us to say no to sin and yes to truth.” Randy Alcorn

“Jesus reserved his hardest words for the hidden sins of hypocrisy, pride, greed and legalism.” Philip Yancey

“Rather than growing bigger churches we should be concerned with growing bigger Christians.” Rich Mullins

“Cheap grace is the deadly enemy of our church. We are fighting today for costly grace.” Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Reply to critics: I like the way I do it better than the way you don’t.

“We are saved by faith alone. However, faith that saves is never alone…it is always accompanied by works.” Martin Luther

“Many Christians are unthinkably horrified when a real sinner is suddenly discovered among the righteous. So we remain alone with our sin, living in lies and hypocrisy…He who is alone with his sins is utterly alone. Dietrich Bonhoeffer

“Enemy occupied territory–that is what the world is. Christianity is the story of how the rightful King has landed in disguise, and is calling us all to take part in a great campaign of sabotage.” CS Lewis

This Sunday (July 8th) at BIllings Vineyard

July 3, 2007

Allen Hodges and family are on vacation and have asked me to teach this Sunday July 8th. I am quite a bit excited and a wee bit nervous as I have not taught in a large gathering for some time.

We will be covering James 2: verses 14-26.

Pray that God is glorified.

So, if you are in the Billings area drop by the Billings Vineyard Church this Sunday.

Also, if you are in Billings MT on the 4th of July… come to the 1st Annual Hangin’ with the Shelton’s on the 4th. We will be at Millice Park up the street from Target on Central in front of Meadowlark Elementary School 221 29th street west. Bring your own picnic dinner and drinks. We will be starting about 3pm. It will be HOT so bring sunscreen and extra water. Fireworks are visible from the park and should start a sundown.

See you there.

Blessings,
iggy

Sorry for the lack of posts lately

June 27, 2007

I have been back this week from our vacation in California last week… and well I still am recovering from it a bit. Being diabetic takes its toll while I am on the road.

We had tons of fun and we were able to see almost everyone that we wanted to… though those we did not get to were greatly missed.

AND we ate and ate… we forget how good the food is out there.

We spent some time in Monterey in our old stopping grounds… Papa Chano’s is great, the Fishwife is always great… Turtle Bay and Petra’s our always are favorites! We also played tourists a bit and saw the Monterey Bay Aquarium… the kids loved it!

We found out that TES’ old job is still available as they just can fill that position… and I realized I missed living there much.

We were able to stay at a house my sister in law was house sitting… the people actually wanted us to stay there while they were in Hawaii. It was in Menlo Park and was a very fine house… not one I would ever be able to afford I assure you. It was truly a blessing.

We also stayed in a tent on the way up and back. In Pocatello it was a bit chilly as we set our tent up at midnight. It was not as old in Winnemucca on the way back but a bit miserable with the stickers in the grass and in trying to find a good place to set up a tent. We were shocked to see a sign there at McDonald’s stating they would pay $10.00/hr wages… it was almost tempting with the cost of living there being so low. LOL!

Over all we drove, ate, saw friends and relatives and listened to hours of Derek Webb, then came back… it was a bit of a rush.

So here I am trying to stabilize my blood sugars and thinking about so many things. Not must about the trip… but about a few things i hope to share later. Just a tip. If you have not read Shane Clairborne’s Irresistible Revolution I recommend it greatly.

Blessings,
iggy
