“We need to tell all these people!”
Yeah, no kidding Leo. I think. It’s not like we haven’t been telling people…we bought T shirts, it’s on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, it’s on the website, we’ve sent emails, announcements…we’re trying!
But then I see the excitement in Leo’s eyes…and I realize…there’s no substitute for joy.
There is nothing in print, video or social media that can even come close to the light someone’s eyes.
It’s like trying to take a picture of the sky. A good picture represents just fine…but the brilliance of the color, the reflection of the light, the temperature, the sounds, the breezes, and the sand or pavement beneath your feet are all part of the story.
Trying to describe the whole story is like trying to capture the sky.
It’s week 3 of 6 for Summer Impact, 2014. We’ve hosted a few hundred people from a handful of churches in a few different states. We’ve eaten together, studied together, prayed & served together, endured weather, exhaustion and grumpiness together, asked questions, developed relationships and created memories together. AND THERE IS STILL TIME…if you want to sign up for a one day experience, let us know, we’ll hook you up with one of the best days of your summer.
We are selling Tshirts for 10 bucks. Other than that, this is not your normal day on the beach!
They beached the boat at Gennesaret and tied up at the landing. As soon as they got out of the boat, word got around fast. People ran this way and that, bringing their sick on stretchers to where they heard he was. Wherever he went, village or town or country crossroads, they brought their sick to the marketplace and begged him to let them touch the edge of his coat—that’s all. And whoever touched him became well. Mark 6:56 (MSG)

You might see Leo and his friends passing out flyers around town this week. You might run into a Summer Impact Team. If you do, ask them to tell you what they’ve experienced. You might catch a glimpse of joy.
