We focused on Isaiah 58 today and it was an incredible time about talking about a true fast. Not an opportunity to get God’s attention, but a chance to be his hands and feet in the world.
The band led so well today. I am just honored I get to be in the band.
Scott Hill, our Mission Pastor, preached today and did an incredible job. He laid it out there so well. I was sitting in my seat thanking God that he brought Scott to North Side. So thankful for the way he is leading us to think and live missionally.
