I'm so grateful for the beautiful Easter service at CITN today...considering all of the changes we've encountered since last Easter, added to everything else that was going on today, it was a powerful and miraculous thing to see approximately 1,000 people (counting children and babies) come together in one mind and one accord to celebrate the Resurrection...to Pastor Jon Scott, Dan Shives, Chandra Currelley and everyone else who helped create the worship experience, I can't thank you enough...and as much as I love first time visitors, it was so encouraging to see that it was basically all of our people in attendance...thankyou so much, CITN, for understanding covenant and unconditional love...for being mature...for helping build a spiritual city where everyone (and I mean everyone) really is welcome and accepted as they are!
Here are some family pics from today, but I really wish we had gotten some crowd shots this morning...even though we're currently in a smaller building, it was wonderful to see the place packed, with stressed-out ushers bringing out extra chairs...believe me, these days I don't take anything for granted, so I am really, really grateful tonight for what today's service represented...if any of you happened to have snapped some pics of the service, please send them to me...I'd love to add them to this album...God is good...Jesus is alive...and I love you all so, so much!

Thanks and I love you!
Here's what I just posted on Facebook...I wanted to reach out to any of you who may not use the social networks with a personal "THANKYOU", because tonight my heart is filled with nothing but gratitude for all of you...I hope that each one of you had an excellent Resurrection Day, and that the hope of life conquering death is a reality in your personal world tonight...that the miracle of springtime replacing the cold of winter and the possibilities of renewal are living big in your heart! Remember...the Law of the Spirit of LIFE in Christ Jesus has made you free from the law of sin and death!
