River Eyes Open River Touch Your World

i’m loving this new series we’re doing at our church, The RIver.  We have a TOUCH YOUR WORLD message in the morning, with an emphasis on turning our heart outwards to other people in our world and an EYES OPEN message in the evening at our 7pm service.  This week i’m preaching at 7.  Excited much and so thankful for the opportunity.

its our wedding anniversary on monday but we mostly celebrated last weekend as our babysitter was available then.  but its so inbetween movie season and also oscar season.  which means only meh movies or really intense movies (like 12 yrs a slave) and we weren’t really in the frame of mind for that.  in the end we rejigged our babysitter to come in the arvo and we went and saw JACK RYAN : SHADOW RECRUIT.  and loved it.  is the classic action move.  great hero.  great action.  good plot.  its based on a TOM CLANCY character.   i confess it was also lovely to in plush air conditioned surroundings at the Monteray Movie Theatre on a very hot day!





we have entered into a new parenting phase.  we are now youth group parents.  our son started youth group last week @ The River.  and had an awesome time.  i adore our leaders and what they’re doing with the young people in East Auckland. 



and as always.  i love Jesus with all i am and all my heart and all my soul and all my days. For His glory and the building of His kingdom and the rescue of the lost.
