A grace filled weekend….

Aug 25, 2008

Still recuperating after a long, but beautifully ending weekend at The Orchard… 

It began with me officiating a wedding ceremony for a great couple from The Orchard.  And then…..the memorial celebration service for Todd Mitchell – which had to be one of the most impacting and celebratory services I have ever been a part of.  Our team was amazing and I have never been more proud of this guy.  More on that later… 

This was also weekend #2 in our new series called, "Becoming."  This is a series where we are taking our time journeying through several contemplative, communal, and missional practices.  And seriously……I haven't been this excited about a series on a long time!

We also had the special privilege of having a guest artist, Katrina Willis,
with us for all three weekend services.  Her portrait illustrations were
so beautiful and added a great element to our gatherings.

Without a doubt, it was a grace filled weekend…

    Man Scott, you guys have been super busy. We’ll keep praying for you and your family. btw – love the “becoming” series! two words: open source.

    Glad to see God working through you and your church. I can relate to the business of having a death (or two) in a short time span, + the everyday work getting ready for Sundays. But it is amazing the grace you can find in those moments. Sounds like you and your church found that grace.

    Love the pictures to get an idea of what your services are like. Sounds like a great series!

    Scott, I live in southeastern Ind., so I am only able to listen to your podcasts. It was cool to see the paintings that I heard about from the sermon. I’m really enjoying the series. Thanks.

    hey scott, i’ve been reading your blog from afar for a while now. i have painted during worship services before and wanted to know if the paintings were created throughout the entire service, or only during worship?
