Youth Center!!!!

It has been a long time since I blogged last and I hope to get one done again soon, but it has been a crazy busy time lately. We are on the verge of opening a Youth Center in Albion, IN(our town). I have been working with about 20 individuals from about 6 or 7 different churches and denominations to build this center. Our church began the movement and I am president of "The Studio" which is the name of it. We are having a pre-opening tomorrow night (Thurs. 7-12) and Grand Opening for teens on Friday night. We are so excited and it is going to be an awesome God thing for the next several years and then some. God has really done an awesome thing bringing so many people from so many theological backgrounds together to accomplish this. It seems like an awesome thing to us because we are human, but to God it was just a snap of his fingers because He is God! Which tells me that we as humans can mess up even the simplest of things.
So I guess that is a lesson for today's blog. No matter what background you come from, if we are all on the same team, then we have the same coach, and that coach can do some awesome things with the team when the "superstars" get out of the way and let Him be the coach. No matter if we even know what the word theology means, we all are affected by a theology in some way because we all have a background and that background affects our view of church and God even if that background denies God, that is the effect it has.
So put aside differences, let the Coach be the Coach and the team will accomplish its purpose.
Please pray for the Studio this weekend to have an awesome start and to run a long and prosperous race!
