I love it!
My friend Teri @ A View From The Mountaintop, posted a quick video on her blog today. The clip is taken from part of a message that Matt Chandler gave at the Desiring God pastors conference just a couple of weeks ago.
She sweetly linked my blog to hers because she knows that I attend Matt's church, The Village. She and I both share a love of his style and the down to earth way that he speaks the truth!
Today, I have had a few people ask, "Do you go to Matt Chandler's church?"
The answer is Yes.
And he is just as good every weekend as he was at the Desiring God conference.
I am so going to email him (or tell him face to face) all the hooplah that I am getting on MY blog about him! He will get a kick out of it.
Actually, he is very humble. But I will tell him anyway.
So, for those of you who wonder what in the world I am talking about, go check it out on Teri's link.
Or go check Matt out on the church web site.... The Village Church
The messages are podcast weekly.
Some of you know, as friends, or long time readers, that I have been dealing with some wounds that came of being part of a church that was not functioning properly. Some things happened that caused me to almost give up on the "organized" church all together. God is so, so good. He moved me to Texas and gently moved my husband and our family into life at the Village Church. Matt calls me a "Recovering Skeptic". Between his fabulous teaching, the godly home group that I am a member of, the redeeming recovery ministry that is part of my church...and OF COURSE, God's word and Holy Spirit, my passion for the church has returned ten fold!
What a blessing to be a part of this fellowship. And how fun that I have made a sweet connection with a friend, across the country, who loves my pastor almost as much as I do!
God...you are so cool!
I lift up Matt, and all the other pastors who are doing your work. Protect them and use them.
