Here I am last weekend at our Naperville downTOWN location. We found out a few weeks ago that we were not going to be able to meet in the auditorium at Naperville North High School and that we were going to have to make other plans. This group has responded brilliantly! Last Sunday’s alternative plan was for us to all meet in a tent…outside…in 100 degree heat. And people loved it! After I finished speaking I was walking out on my way to the Yellow Box for the 11:00 am service and I told Eric Bramlett, “great job today”. He smiles and just says, “make lemonade!”
Since we started CCC we have literally met in dozens of different facilities and spaces, but I think this is the first time in the history of CCC we met outside for a weekend celebration service (and maybe the first time I taught in shorts!?!). Well, this is a terrific example of the CHURCH as an UNSTOPPABLE FORCE!
