Got love?

This is a video of a pastor (Francis Chan) whose teaching rocks my world.

Chan sets my heart on fire as he talks about truly loving others...and how that looks in action. As an example, his church decided to forego building an expensive sanctuary and instead build an outdoor amphitheatre in which to hold service. While they know it means possibly attending church in the cold, the heat, the rain...the money they will save is dedicated to helping others.

I'm not going to kid you...it's long...normal service time. And I know the phrase "if you have a free minute" makes you double over in laughter. So maybe you can listen while you do dishes...or pay bills...or, like me, take a shower.

Wow, what a beautiful blog. I'm getting ready for bed, but will try to get back and listen to this sermon. I love a great speaker who can wake me up and help me re-focus my spirit.
