Several of us are praying for a new church plant in our small town. In conjunction with that I attended a Women's Group on Friday night which is studying an excellent book, One Way Love by Tullian Tchividjian. The first meeting was interesting and encouraging.
Then Saturday night, David Davis, horse trainer, trick rider, preacher, singer, songwriter performed at Linn Park. He presented a wonderful show of horse tricks before one of our larger crowds and then moved to the stage of the Linn Park Amphitheater to play his violin, guitar and sing, with a little preaching/sharing thrown in. An absolutely beautiful experience!
Then today David was invited to minister at the Cowboy Church in Toledo, so we went, too. It was a wonderful experience--outside in beautiful weather, chickens walking around, horses saddled for the trail ride they had planned after the service, kids playing on the swing, good music and a great word by David! He also ministered prophetic words after the service. I was grateful to be one of the recipients and felt he really heard from the Lord for me.
And tonight we went to a Small Group Leadership Training for the new church plant. A very inspirational weekend!
