Wooddale Worldwide Week has started, and in two days we will be announcing the Wooddale Senior High Summer Missions Trips of 2006! I can’t wait. As a youth pastor I have seen God use these trips to change the lives of students every single time we’ve taken one. This year will be no exception.
The announcement takes place at ten:fifteen, our Sunday morning program.
An informational meeting for all interested students, parents, and potential mission trip staff takes place on Wednesday, November 16, at 6:00 p.m. in the Wooddale’s Room 207. Don’t miss it!
I long to see you so that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to make you strong— that is, that you and I may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith.
Romans 1:11, 12
I get asked questions all of the time about the Emerging Church movement. Brian McLaren recently talked about seven layers of emerging churches. Maybe your church is more emerging than you thought.

For a fascinating discussion on the Emerging Church movement, and why James MacDonald is not emerging check out: http://blog.christianitytoday.com/outofur/archives/2005/10/why_james_macdo.html#more. The feedback on the blog is fascinating. Author and speaker Scott McKnight’s response to MacDonald is most interesting. You can read his response, and James MacDonald’s response back here: http://www.jesuscreed.org/?p=502.
Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.
