It was smooth sailing on my flight to Chicago. I was a bit concerning about the flight since it was the last flight that would get me to Chicago on time for the Sunday Celebration. I realized that Sunday mornings are the best time to fly – there are less people and fewer interruptions in the airport.
I shared a third part of the “Taking Up the Challenge” series (a message specially designed for HMCC of Chicago). I laid down the vision of reaching campuses in the Chicago area and even future international church plants.
Afterwards, I had some good conversation with people during fellowship time. It is our prayer that we would continue raise up radical followers of Christ in the Chicagoland area who will live for God’s Kingdom purposes.
Today, I am going to meet up with some members and staff members. Then we have our vision meeting for our new site at UIC with the leaders and staff. I love strategic meetings. It is a great way to train ourselves to listen to the voice of God and then put things into motion for the future.
