This week has been wonderfully out of sync with my weekly schedule. I’ve been in Chicago for The Gospel Coalition Conference.
It was neat. It was neat to sit in a chair surrounded by people who love my God. It was neat to hear men that I consider to be the elders of the Church in America today to unpack words written thousands and thousands of years ago and teach how they point to the person of Christ. It was neat to sit around a table and eat pizza with 7 of my brothers and sisters in Christ and feel brotherly affection overwhelm me.
Tomorrow I’ll share some of what I’ve been processing and then next week I’ll post an Isaiah 53 series leading up to Easter! Before we get to all that, we have this week’s question. This one is actually a little sneaky, and not very theological or biblical in nature, and it comes from…me.
Why should you sign up for the World’s Greatest Kickball Tournament?
If you live in Austin, April 30th might just be the most fun you can have for an eternal cause in one day. Reagan baseball field will be transformed into a huge kickball tournament as well as mini carnival with food and fun for the whole family. Here are 5 reasons you don’t want to miss it:
1. Kickball. Everyone loves kickball. Especially when there is competition involved. Gather up a team of 8-10 and get ready to play! If you don’t have that many people or if you don’t have any people, no worries! You can sign up as an individual or open your team for other individuals to join! Sign up here: http://ow.ly/4wx0g
2. Carnival. If kickball isn’t your thing, you can just bring family or friends out to the carnival! We’ll have fun games for adults and kids as well as some delicious food!
3. Raffle. We have a serious raffle at this event. Including, but not limited to, a signed acoustic guitar from Joe Nichols, tickets and a Meet and Greet with Eli Young Band, Los Lonely Boys Tickets, 2 All-Access Producer Badges from the Austin Film Festival ($1300 value), and more!
4. T-shirts. Whether you can make it or not to the event, you’ll want to snag one of these super cute t-shrits, (design above)! Order here: http://ow.ly/4yIkw. And I believe TODAY is the last day to order!
5. The nations. This event is a fundraiser to raise money for a group of women going overseas this summer to serve. I’m thrilled to be a part of this trip and I know that the Lord has great plans. Our prayer is that this event will be a fun and great way for you to get involved!
If you’re still not convinced, I will give you a couple more links to get you fired up. I have never really been a part of something with quite so many promo videos, but hey – if you have some time to kill this afternoon, I’ve just made your day 🙂
