Hawaii Next Week

Hey yall!

Last saturday was so good, just listening to Jason speak truth into all of our lives. It was killer.

I leave for Hawaii next week to visit my girlfriend. She goes to calvary bible college on Maui. I will be gone April 8 - 18th. So I will actually be missing two saturdays in a row for April. I let Darin know, but he never got back to me so I hope he's not surprised. Anyways, Love you Darin, now you know if you're reading this.

What I've been learning lately: God has been teaching me to hate sin, Love him, & just love people and let them be who they are. Learned that mostly from last Saturday. Thanks guys,

Love, Peace, and chicken grease,

Nick A.

Expectancy in CIRCLES

If any of you Slices ever have a monday night open then you should totally come to your CIRCLES lifegroup. It is so awesome!

One of the greatest thing I love about it is that it is such a healing place. The last couple weeks there have been people that needed prayer for things and so we all layed hands on them and then God started his healing work on them. Whether that's over an important relationship or a lost family member or even a physical ailment... we all have NO inhibitions to just start praying for it. I can't wait for someone to come on a monday night with a deep sickness or a broken body part or something because they honestly have a great chance of being healed.

I know I am sounding weird to a lot of you who have read this far, but it just doesn't matter to me. I'm so excited for CIRCLES and the fellowship that we all can have. Let's pray together, worship together, receive healing together and bear one anothers burdens. I love you all and my stoked meter will be continually rising over the next 6 months.

Junior High Winter Camp

My lab piece for CIRCLES is being a Junior High leader at RH. And we leave for our annual winter retreat tomorrow. We are going to Big Bear Lake.

All I want is for these kids to encounter God. To see a change this weekend in there hearts for God and then in their behavior for God. I want them to be changed by the Holy Spirit and realize that Christ's death and resurrection are the two most important acts that ever happened in all of history. I want them to worship wholeheartedly, passionately, and give themselves in total unhindered consecration to the Lord. I wanna see revival in our middle school and in ten years I wanna hear about how the middle school kids of Rockharbor Church are changing the world for the King and His Kingdom. Come Holy Spirit and pour Yourself out on Your children!

World religions class

I don't usually post two separate posts one right after the other. Sorry to make you read two in a row, but I had to.

I'm sitting in my Philosophy 112: World Religions class right now and these are some of the questions that are coming up right now...

What is religion? Why is religion?
What is the goal of religion?
Is there one true religion?
Is religion just dogma?
Does religion deal with truth?
What is enlightenment?
Is it ok to judge?
Does God exist?
Does God have a nature?
What is faith?
What is truth?

Man...I'm having a really hard time to know what to say and how to say it. I'm a religious studies major and I will be sitting in these types of classes for a looonng time. Just pray for me that I will hold up the gospel in a loving, rational, correct way in the midst of all these questions that are absolutely HUGE and numerous.

Romance...That seems like a good title

This was going to be a comment on Caydin Sanders' blog about being in a relationship with God before we can enter into a relationship with another person. It seemed like to big of a comment so I'm just gonna make it into a post. 

Before people can enter into a relationship with someone else, both parties must be united with God individually. Before we can healthily partake in Eros love, we must first know & receive Agape love from the Father, Son, and Spirit. 

Caydin wrote, "And foremost, He is giving me the gift of a deepened relationship with Him."

I can't agree more. So many of us want that deep relationship with another person, or to be fulfilled by an achievement, goal, or human. We become "relationship-ly", we become  "marriage-ly", or our heart becomes taken up by another person and we become "_________-ly" (insert name there). People, things, and passions fill the parts of our hearts that only God can fill! 

LET US BE "GOD-LY"!! Filled with His love and devotion to us first before any other entity can enter.
