"If you had one month left to live, you'd be surprised at all the things that really didn't matter any more"

I have a friend who is going through a nasty divorce. Both he and his wife are hurting in a big way from all that is going on. They have children and there is a lot of anger and confusion on their part as well. I have really struggled with how to help them. I want to be a good friend and give them the best direction that I can.
I have something that I am sharing with them and you. If you or someone you know is going through this same struggle you need to check out the video below.
This is a way to find healing from one of those things that can get pretty nasty.

We will remember this for the rest of our lives

Every once in a while you experience things that you will never forget. I know our minds are full of memories both good and bad but what I am talking about here is those obvious things that you can look at someone and say, "We will remember this for the rest of our lives".

That is the kind of experience that we had at Flamingo Road Church this past weekend.
Easter weekend always gives us great opportunities. This past weekend our team at FRC leveraged that opportunity to touch peoples lives.

We saw thousands come to events in the communities that we serve in.

We saw thousands come to our services.

We saw hundreds give their lives to Christ.

We saw over 600 put on the God-jersey by being baptized.

Galatians 3:27(CEV),
"And when you were baptized, it was as though you had put on Christ in the same way you put on new clothes."

We have an incredible team at FRC.
We work hard.
We celebrate what God is doing in our church and community.

We thank God for giving us a weekend that "we will remember for the rest of our lives".

Ash Trays and Church

I pulled up to FRC the other morning and I saw a ash tray when I got out of my car.

My first reaction was to start laughing.
I remember when I was a kid some of the men in our church would stand to the side of the front entrance and smoke their cigarettes before they came in.
The funny part is that the people who would complain the most about these smokers were tobacco farmers.
I can still remember my dad talking about it.
I guess the reason I started laughing when I saw this is that I know some people will complain about it. They might even say that we are making it easier for some to smoke.
The way look at it is that I am so honored to work at a church that is reaching people in our community. When you are in the people business it can get messy every once in a while. After all they are just like you and me.
I hope you will leverage everything you can to bring people to FRC this Easter weekend.
We will be ready for you and them. Ash trays and all!
