My Not-Quite-Ideal Launch Week

2 Pillars Church–Northeast launches this Sunday. Here’s a brief summary of what launch week has looked like so far:

  • Monday–Thursday: I was sick for the first four days of the week. I can’t remember the last time I was sick and out of commission for this long.
  • Friday (Today): Fever free, I finally got to the office this morning to spend some uninterrupted time working on my sermon for Sunday when…the sewer in our building backed up. A few hours later, the water has been shop vac’d from the carpets, box fans are in place, and I’m sitting at my desk once again.

You can’t make this stuff up! I’m beginning to wonder if this is all part of some church planter hazing ritual I wasn’t told about.

I know God is up to something here, though I’m not entirely sure what it is. At the very least, I suspect it includes teaching me lessons about my sinful desire for control and how critical it is that I trust Him as we launch this 2 Pillars Northeast.

Now, back to that sermon.
