I’m doing my best to follow Jesus, foster missional communities, operate an auto body shop, complete a doctoral program, and write a book. I do this in Cincinnati, Ohio (west Norwood, to be exact).

    Rosie stated that she knew you from back in the day when I came across a liturgical form of worship within teh Vineyard Community. I decided to give Vineyard Central a chance. It’s very interesting in its approach. Very familiar since I spent quite some time with the Eastern Orthodox yet much more relaxed…I doubt if you guys have a six hour Paschal service where you’re required to stand the whole time.LOL.

    I was studying to be a Vinyard pastor through the VLIAD program with the Eastgate Vineyard and that fell apart miserably through theological differences over a typo. To say the least my confidence in the “Institution” is suspect.

    Indulge me if you will and read my blog titled ‘I Want To Believe.’ It is the second blog on my site. Your opinion would be appreciated.

    Hi, Kevin: You may recall that we spoke on the phone several months back. I would like to inquire as to the possibility of visiting you all during the week following Christmas. I was thinking of maybe a three day trip that would include some time to meet with you and Dave Nixon.

    For the sake of memory refreshment, I am from Orange County, California.

    Please let me know if a visit that week might be possible. Thanks!

    Hi. Just a random reader out in the deep of America. Right now I am drinking my coffee on a Saturday morning, about to make pancakes for my family. I can hear my kids playing. Husband will come down for his coffee soon.

    It’s my turn to lead bible study on Monday, and the topic is Acts 2. I was Baptised in the Holy Spirit at a Vineyard church in Cape Town, but God has brought me (long story) (aren’t they always) to this Methodist church in the suburbs. The Holy Spirit, especially of Acts 2, is viewed a little safer here – not much chaos. But they are in Acts 2. It will be a topic.

    Genesis 1:2 wasn’t mentioned in the writing this week, but it has always been one of my favorite pictures of the Holy Spirit. Hovering over the deep. Ready at God’s breath. Calling forth life, restoring order to chaos. Google delivered your August 1, 2001 post to me after I typed in some of those phrases.

    So that’s how one person ended up here. Pray for her on Monday, and for this community.
