I just sent this note to my Redeemer family.

Dear Redeemer Family:

Linda and I are with many of our Redeemer family at our Holy Spirit Renewal Ministries conference in Green Lake, Wisconsin.

We have just had two amazing days with Steve and Wendy Backlund, from Bethel Church in Redding, California.

Yesterday morning Steve and Wendy gave the best teaching on "the joy of the Lord" I have ever heard. And last night's teaching on "tearing down the spiritual strongholds of the mind" was tremendous, and creative, giving Linda and our people new ways to think about what it means to live in Christ.

Steve and Wendy are teaching deep things about knowing and living out our identity in Christ, and refusing to accept the world's unguided, sophomoric, old-school valuations of who we are.

Please pray for Linda and I as we lead worship this morning. Pray for me as I am tonight's speaker. I will be speaking on "Normal Church," and the Church's identity (in contradistinction to what the world thinks of us). I'll share what God is doing in our church, Redeemer.

Thank you for praying for us. We are also praying for you.
