Sunday's service was truly a wonder. I spoke about God's reconciliation of us, and of our service of reconciliation for each other. I did so little, but stand back and watch God give us wonder and love and awe. God opened our eyes to who we are now--right now--because of Him, and we were dazzled. What a great bunch are these Bajan believers.
Since then I have been meeting with small groups of men and women who want more than anything to know God. A team of people from Grace Life Church in Woodstock, Georgia (where I will be speaking this Sunday, March 7), have been here for six months, shepherding them toward their desire. And they're brilliant. All I really do is join them. Everyone here makes sharing my own story of discovering God easy to give. What a community.
I had a bit of "time off" yesterday, and so went snorkeling in Carlisle Bay. There I met a scorpion fish, which skewered my hand. PAIN. Today my left hand is painful and puffy, to say the least. Any treatment suggestions? (Amputation is not acceptable.)
Tonight is a guy's night out, and I'm really looking forward to that. Tomorrow, Saturday, I leave the island and head to Atlanta for a week.
