Class 1 - Postmortem

Class 1 of the Apostolic School is complete. I received an email from my pastor.


You did an exceptional job last night.  I mean REALLLLLLLLY exceptional.

Love you,


I certainly appreciate my pastor very much. He is becoming a close friend. Most of all, it is nice to be loved, even if when I don't do anything; he's good at that. I say "thank you Jesus for what you do." I knew going into this I had nothing to offer without God's intervention.

So what happened? I talked about my passion for Jesus, for helping others find their spiritual gifts, and I taught them to pray for one another. The Doctrine of the Laying on of Hands is very simple.

I stumbled across one of my favorite verses and went for a quick sermon on the releasing the new man. HERE are the details.

We had folks put down their prayer needs on paper, and picked 3 of them to receive the laying on of hands. I am looking forward to the testimonies next week.

Later we asked folks to desire spiritual gifts and then prayed for some of them to receive them from God. Again, I am looking forward to the testimonies.

I made a few mistakes - and well, let's just say sarcasm is not a spiritual gift. I am always humbled to have the headset on.

You can actually join us online Friday nights at 6:30 PM. Here is a LINK. I believe there is a recorded version of the 1st class there as well.

David: Good start. I really appreciated the talk on the gifts and miracles. Just be sure the camera man knows how to focus the camera.
