Preparing to Preach at theWELLbuffalo

Our lives have been in a whirlwind for the last few months. If you haven't been following my family terribly close through facebook or twitter, you may not have noticed that we have moved away from Upstate SC home of the Clemson Tigers to Western NY, home of the Buffalo Bills.

After 4 years at a church plant in SC called  as the Worship and Student Pastor, God has graciously opened doors for me to be part of another church plant called as the Ministry Design Pastor. (Yes, I am aware that my title is a little ambiguous. I'm not sure what I'm supposed to be doing half of the time either.) God is so good to me!

This Sunday, I will be preaching at theWELL. I have been leading worship most Sundays, but every six weeks or so I have the opportunity to teach on whatever God leads me to. This Sunday, I will be preaching from a passage in Exodus 18, where Moses lost his Margin. What is Margin? Its that white space in your Bible where the words stop before the paper's edge. It's the amount available beyond what is necessary.

This passage is one that I need to ruminate over at the beginning of every year, because I have a great tendency to fill every available moment of space in my life with junk. Then I wonder why I don't have the time to do what God intended for to be doing.

Still working out some of the details for Sunday. Here are a few thoughts for you to consider:

Do you wish you had more time to do your hobby?
Do you wish you had more time for yourself?
Do you wish you had more time with your loved one?
Do you wish you had more time with God?

So did Moses... How did he remedy the problem? Exodus 18-19
