I'm going dark!!!

I'm going dark! No, I don't mean my complexion silly, I'm talking about being off the internet for a few days. I'm speaking at a men's conference in Garner State Park (90 miles outside of San Antonio, TX) and they are apparently still in the dark ages with no access to phones or internet (gulp! How will the world survive without me for a few days?) Anyway, that means that this will be my last post for the week. Instead of posting on the just concluded ARC conference (I'll give you my final thoughts on that next week) I figured I should post on something spectacular and unprecedented that is about to take place in June.

Craig Groeschel came up with the idea of One Prayer which asks the question what if...? (I bet he borrowed the idea from my post of the same title). What if we all prayed one prayer as a church globally? This, apparently led him to the idea that he would teach a message titled Make us One, and have that message shared by video in as many churches as were interested in being a part of One Prayer. For the entire month of June, a different message would be preached by a different speaker. For instance, at Craig's he would have Perry Noble teach on Make us dangerous, and then Ed Young Jr. would teach on Make us creative (all of these via video). Pastors from across the globe who wanted to participate in One Prayerwould submit a teaching to the website teaching on whatever their One Prayer for the church would be.

We would all have access to any of the messages submitted, so that we could pick and play any three of them over the month of June at our local churches (obviously the fourth message would be the one you are teaching). The Well will be participating in this amazing adventure and I will be teaching a message titled, Make us passionate. If you're interested in finding out more about this and who will be participating go here. If you want to sign up to be a part of One prayer go here.
