Last month we started back up the monthly Pastor, Director, and Coordinator meeting. It was my first one since being on staff here at MPCC, but I've been to meetings similar to this before, so I already had my assumptions of what was going to happen. Anyway, I thought what my pastor shared was great insight into the book of Numbers and specifically chapter 11. All of these main points came from his own study. Now take 5 minutes, read chapter 11, and come back here you so have a better understanding of what is happening.
A New Beginning: Looking Back @ 2020
I almost forgot this blog even existed for a moment. It has been 364 days since my last entry. There had been a few times this year where I wanted to sit down and write, but didn't have the energy, felt like no one would care to listen, or even that I had anything worth sharing. Heck, I even had a pending post here from September that I never finished. Not today though. Today this post is for me, and if you come across it, I hope you find some sort of value from it. Whether you sympathize with me or are encouraged about a new year, I hope this post lifts a weight I feel like I've been carrying around for longer than I expected.
Looking Back @ 2019
Today marks the end of decade. A decade. To be honest, I've never really thought about what it is like to finish out a decade. It's probably because I'm 24 and 14 year old Cody wasn't thinking about what year we were in, ha! The last month has been different for me, and I've been recalling and thinking a lot about this past year. A lot has happened in the last 365 days.
Everyone said that we would have our hands full. Man were they right. I have to give huge props upfront to my wife, the brave soul that she is, who stays home with the kids while I'm at work. Even with her getting ready to start back up with taking classes, she is crushing it...
Engagement in our Churches
A few weeks ago I went to a conference with some of the Emmanuel staff, and I wanted to share some thoughts from one of the breakout sessions I went to.
Just a guy sharing some thoughts on life. Thankful for my family and my job.
