this is it!

Posted by dturn on April 27, 2009

This is my last post on this address.
I will announce my new destination tomorrow.

I hope that I have inspired/motivated/encouraged you through my thoughts and writings.
I pray that God will allow me to do even more in His name.

Starting a church movement is just one of my callings in life.
Teaching, writing and taking a stand against racism, pornography and small-minded thinking are what keeps my mind occupied.

Check me out tomorrow.

funky faith friday

Posted by dturn on April 17, 2009

Here are a few things that I am crazy enough to believe God for:

1. Doors opening to connect people to Christ.
It’s already happening but a few more would be cool.

2. A sold-out crew ready to make Joliet a difficult place to go to hell from.
Looking for black, white, hispanic, asian, whatever.

3. Sponsoring some events that will bring the message of Christ to the culture.
Stay tuned for this. Will be looking for partners.

I haven’t posted anything in a while (duh!)

God has really been messing me up lately.

I have had lots of disappointing moments in the last month or so.
I have also been blessed!

Stay tuned as I transition this blog and take it to another level.

peace

Clutter-free Christianity

Posted by dturn on April 6, 2009

Here is a write-up on a new book I am reading:

When did the Christian life become so complicated?
Your greatest desire is to please God, but with each passing week, your spiritual to-do list grows longer.
As you strive to fulfill a never-ending inventory of requirements for being a godly parent, spouse, voter, employee, and more, you feel increasingly disconnected from the God you’re trying to serve.
It’s time to cut through the clutter and get to the heart of what it means to please God.

In this liberating look at the core principles of faith, Dr. Robert Jeffress reveals the truth about what God really wants from you–and what He wants to do for you.
Through solid biblical teaching and practical insights, Dr. Jeffress points you toward a revitalized faith centered on becoming more like Jesus in action, attitude, and affection. You’ll learn how to partner with God in the process of spiritual transformation as you choose to follow Christ in forgiveness, obedience, trust, contentment, service, and prayer.
Through a renewed focus on experiencing the kingdom of God right now, you’ll find your to-do list shrinking and your spiritual life deepening. It all comes with embracing Clutter-Free Christianity.
Includes a Bible study guide for personal growth and group discussion.

This is a great book that I have just gotten into. I recommend it off of what I have read so far.
