Daily Reading

This past Sunday was the beginning of our latest series, TEXT.  For the past week, I have been thinking about the various methods used over the years that really helped me stay in the habit of  "daily reading God's Word."   

Daily devotionals (free one's from church and store bought), accountability group, carrying around a verse in my pocket, set morning ritual, having a small Bible that always goes with me and my latest fave: YouVersion and their one year reading plan.

What's currently working for you?

Prayer for the President.

Andy prayed for the President today. Looks like he also bought a new suit. In his own words, "I pray for the President.  I ask others to pray for the President.  I was asked to pray for the President in front of the President."

Pretty cool Andy.  Good job.

Who did you pray for today?

No matter what your political view, today is a momentous day in the history of our country.
A black man will lead the free world.

Racism will not be solved.
The economy will not suddenly get better.
Wars will not cease.

It is just a man, a sinful, broken man, who will place his hand on the Word of God and make a bunch of promises. 
The biggest moment today will be when you decide whether to complain and debate about policies, decide to place all your hope in just a man, or decide to fall on your knees and pray for the leadership of our country.

What will today mean to you?

So Worth The Risk...

Risk.  Life is full of it.  Managing risk is something we do everyday.  We decide how fast to drive on the ice or if we can make it across the street without being hit by a truck.  Life is risky.  But you must risk if you want to gain. 

At NorthBridge, we try to make your step into a community group as risk- free as possible.  But it is never risk-free.  Nothing worth doing is risk-free.  But the benefits are many.  Community group is your place to connect, your place to grow and learn, your place to be cared for. 

8 week starter groups are forming on January 31.  Stay tuned for more…..

Risk it!!!


Are you in a group yet???

Go Buckhead!

Buckhead Church (a North Point video church just like us) posted this on their blog Monday:

Today was one of those days to remember at Buckhead Church.

We had over 7,000 people attend our worship services, an all-time record.

Over 500 children were on UpStreet. Another record.

Over 1,700 small group guides for the Balanced series were purchased. 

We celebrated some amazing baptism stories as well.

Incredible!  Just Incredible!

Crazy things can happen when we "JUST ASK".

Below is a clip from Penn (of Penn and Teller, famous Vegas magic/comedy act) sharing about an encounter after one of their recent shows.  FYI, Penn is a pretty outspoken atheist.

Our fear does more damage than the reality of what would happen if we sowed true compassion.
