This Sunday…Earl Creps


Haven’t blogged for a while.  I’ve had plenty of thoughts bouncing around my hollow dome that I’ve wanted to throw out here, but it’s been a busy week, I’ve been trying to spend the time I have with my fam, and although the thoughts have been there, I haven’t been very motivated to blog.  It’s also been a bit of a taxing week relationally.  Seems like I’ve had one run in after another.  They haven’t all ended up bad or unresolved, but either way, the distractions take something out of you, ya know?  Hopefully it’s just a season…a very short one (not like baseball season).  It’s part of doing this thing called life and engaging with others on the journey.

On a lighter side, I’m way stoked about our guest speaker this coming Sunday!  If you’re a CLC attender, be sure you are there.  You don’t want to miss out!  I became familiar with Earl Creps’ writings about a year or so ago.  I’ve read a number of his posts over at Monday Morning Insight and made it through some of his book, Off Road Disciplines.  He recently left his position at Assembly of God Theological Seminary in Springfield so that he and his wife can embark on a new journey of planting a church in Berkeley, CA.  You can see a post I wrote about that a while back here.  As I said then, I’m still looking forward to seeing where that goes.  Those of you who have been around here long enough know it gets me excited to hear stories of church multiplication, especially from competent and relevant people.

This afternoon I had the opportunity to sit down with him and his wife along with our team to prepare for our gathering on Sunday.  He and his wife are great peeps!  For a well established guy, I am struck my his humility and down to earth nature.  Like I said, lookin forward to Sunday.  Knock one out of the park this week Earl!
