An Accord, a Pick-Up Truck and a Big Green Tractor

Vehicles are a part of life, and this week my life is characterized by three.

As you are probably aware, Scott Brown, a candidate that I supported for Senator, was elected yesterday. He drove a pick-up truck which was part of his campaign commercials; one that became the butt of Democratic jokes. He showed real character and passion during his campaign. We'll see how that translates in Washington. My friend Tony C broke the STORY in Blogville earlier today, so check it out. We think alike; he just does the thinking faster than I do.

Today I am working and then off to practice with my new band, Up Country playing the likes of Big Green Tractor and Sounds Like Life to Me. It's been fun playing with real people. I'll get some MP3's posted eventually so you can judge for yourself.

The third vehicle is an Accord, but not a Honda. It is something in the church that I have been talking about on-and-off for 10 years, but I wrote about it again last week.

Acts 2:46 So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, 47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved.

Within just a few days of writing that blog, I received an email from a friend that I have known for a few years. He and I have played Christian music on a pretty regular basis and occasionally grab a meal together. A few others from his town are seriously thinking about starting a church and he asked for my input. He distributed my blog series on the 5-Fold ministry and we are going to discuss their new church Sunday afternoon.

If you have read this blog for any length of time, you know what I think a local church body is supposed to look like. Of course it all needs prayer, and has to be a God thing, or it isn't worth doing.
I think it will be interesting to see where this goes - and if my broodings turn out to be the direction this new group will be taking. I don't have any specific expectations, except to be passionate about my Lord Jesus. Passion worked for Scott Brown, and maybe it will for me. I'd appreciate your prayers.

Well this looks like a good way to get started with a church that would embrace the 5 fold ministry. It might also be your new spiritual home if it is close by.

Either way, I do believe it is a start not only for your friend but also you. Do you think that God is showing the way? I think so.

You got my prayers.
