Justice Revival!!!

Hello all! I really want to share with you about an exciting event coming to Columbus April 16-19, 2008.

It's called a "Justice Revival". For some of you the word "justice" is sort of scary, for some of you "revival" is sort of scary. I can promise, putting the two together is one of the most amazing thing to happen in a long time! The event will be sort of like "Billy Graham meets Martin Luther King, Jr".

From their website
"The mission of the Justice Revival is to unite the church in calling people to follow Jesus and deepen their commitment to social justice"

The three night revival will be Wednesday, April 16- Friday, April 18 with a city-wide day of service on Saturday, April 19. The program will start each night at 7PM at the Vineyard Church in Columbus (6000 Cooper Rd. Westerville, OH 43081). For all of you "emerging leaders" out there!! (age 18-30) Come check out the emerging leaders coffeehouse each night after the revival in the Cafe at the Vineyard. P.W. Gopal will perform on Friday night!

The Blizzard of Spring Break 08?

Yeah, that's right, just a week shy of St. Patrick's Day it looks more like Christmas in Ohio! They measured a record 18 inches in a 24 hour period. Unfortunately, it was the first day of OWU's spring break! Which means we have a few hundred anxious students on campus who are either trying to get home, get to the beach, or on one of our 14 mission/ wilderness trips!

I even made one of the craziest trips of my life this morning to Port Columbus to drop off our Joshua Tree Wilderness team, who miraculously made it to California today!!!

Here are some pics taken around our house tonight as we began to shovel out!
