Friday Memo

Hi Five Oakers, The weekends coming and there are a few things I don’t want you to miss: The Weekend I learned a really important lesson about making a commitment while on the ski slopes my freshman year of college.


It’s a fun story about a Cuban kid from Miami wearing leather driving gloves while taking on a black diamond run. You don’t want to miss it. You also don’t want to miss it because this weekend’s sermon is a very personal sermon for me. I completely rewrote the sermon after getting an email from one of our members. Their story of wanting to follow God’s leading brought up so many emotions and then led to a crisis of leadership for about 24 hours. Then came insight. I’ll tell you why. I simply can’t wait to share this sermon with you. And who wants to miss Jersey day? Wear your kid’s jersey or your favorite team’s. It’s going to be fun. If you want to really show up ready, then go to Show up Ready Helpful Links I think you’ll pick up on the theme of these links:

One More Thing I love using The Valley of Vision: A Collection of Puritan Prayers & Devotions in my daily quiet time. Each prayer is profound enough to plant myself in one for the entire week and sometimes two weeks. Here’s the one I’m in now. It reminds me of Tim’s sermon from last weekend.


Blessings to you all,

Pastor Henry
