My summary of Mark Itterman's message on Philipians 2
Companion of destiny
Following their recent trip to Russia, Josh & Matthew come back laden with gifts, chocolate and stories of God's work in that tired land.
A captive audience (amazing how a couple pieces of chocolate can boost audience attentiveness)
Matthew unlocks my passion. One of the few "junk food" things I'll eat. BUT, if it's any less then 75% cocoa ... it's TOO sweet.
A blessed birch broach (ok, ok a necklace to be sure, but since necklace starts with N, I'd 'ave had to of said something like a Nifty Nerdy Necklace and that just isn't working for me)
"You should put this on your dresser so that you don't lose it" - Wisdom from a 4 year old
A duly blotted entry
Fantastic Footage for the Fanatic (after 3 hours, I ceased to be a fanatic and fixed Marscel's airsoft gun with him) - In all seriousness, their trip blessed them as much or more then those they went to bless. They were challenged. I think the biggest challenge they all faced was, as good and necessary as this trip was, what needs are HERE? Are we missing the opportunity's at the tip of our own noses.
