Crazy Love

Read the following excerpt from the back of the book....Our class is getting ready to start this as a bible study....I just finished the book, and it is simply amazing...I hope that we can grow together as a class, and closer to our Lord~as we go through this study together....If I missed anyone that is in our class, feel free to share this with them.....God Bless.....

Crazy Love
Have you ever wondered if we're missing it? It's crazy if you think about it. The God of the universe — the Creator of nitrogen and pine needles, galaxies and e-minor — loves us with a radical, unconditional, self-sacrificing love. And what is our typical response? We go to church, sing songs, and try not to cuss. Whether you've verbalized it yet or not . . . we all know something's wrong. Does something deep inside your heart long to break free from the status quo? Are you hungry for an authentic faith that addresses the problems of our world with tangible, even radical, solutions? God is calling you to a passionate love relationship with Himself. Because the answer to religious complacency isn't working harder at a list of do's and don'ts — it's falling in love with God. And once you encounter His love, as Francis describes it, you will never be the same.

Because when you're wildly in love with someone, it changes everything.

"With an urgency that seeks to awaken a sleeping church mired in the comfort of middle ground, Crazy Love gets to the heart of the matter and leaves you wanting more — more of the matchless Jesus who offers radical life for all."

Sacred Marriage Class Begins Today

Today we began the Sacred Marriage class...that is being taught by our youth minister, and friend, Kurt Rudd...If you guys missed today, be sure to be there next week to participate in this amazing study. We are going to learn to make our marriages stronger, by getting closer to God. The books cost $7, so if you haven't paid yet, be sure to get your money to James or Cassie Allen. If you are writing a check, you can make it to Sunnyside Baptist Church. Our homework for this week is to read chapter 1 of the book....

We are going to start passing a prayer request sheet around the room next week, due to being in a very large class...So, I will post the prayer requests each week from the sheet....

We are also getting a sign up sheet together for our Marriage Retreat that we are having October 3rd and 4th. This retreat is going to be near Natural Tunnel State Park, in Virginia...For those of you who don't know...this is about 40 minutes away. We have a friend that owns a few cabins in this area, and is going to give us a good deal on one of them. We are looking at $30-50 per couple...possibly less..depending on the number of participants....So, please guys, pray about this...James and I are burdened for our SS class...We feel that this is from God...We want to grow closer to Him, while growing closer to each other. God has a plan for us, and I can't wait to see what it is....Mark these dates down on your calendars...and plan on going...It is going to be AWESOME!!!

Hope everyone is having a Blessed Sunday.
