thoughts from a speaker
- So this has really nothing to do with the current trains of thought
posted, but maybe it will help someone with something going on in
their life. I just heard a talk on the verse in Luke about dying to
ourselves, taking up our cross and following him. Maybe it isn't to
deny everything we are and submit ourselves to God (as the speaker
mentioned) but rather to die to the things in our lives that are
keeping us from whatever we are seeking. If something (the bible
says a hand or a foot) gets in our way of achieving our goals get
rid of it. So maybe I'm just over thinking this passage, or this
really refers to simplifying our lives to get out of them the good
stuff. And then I thought how much could I do without on a daily
basis? What are the bare essentials? Or is this spiritual simplicity?
- Hi everyone,
I'm doing some research looking for some folks who

If you or anyone fit these criteria, would you contact me offlist @
It's a big added plus if you happen to be a church planter.
