January 6, 2013: "Big Box" Church reflection

"We can have joy in our troubles, because we know that these troubles produce patience.  And patience produces character, and character produces hope." Romans 5:3-4

I visited Saddleback Church for the first time today.  My youngest daughter and I had the pleasure of meeting Pastor Rick after the service.  What an amazing experience.  I'm excited to participate in the six week 2013 kick off, "What on Earth am I here for?" Cheers to Saddleback's "facilitation of the emergence of self-organizing dynamic networks of love and action." Deepak Chopra

Notes from Jan. 6 Pastor Rick Warren @ Saddleback Church

Moses' 4 Life-Shaping Choices: Hebrews 11:23-27

1. Refuse to be defined by others
2. Short term pain for long term gain
3. Follow what God values, not what the world values
4. Live in Faith not Fear
