This Week at Twin Cities Church

Hey, Fellow Dreamers,

After all the years of pulling into the parking lot above Vikingsholm Castle overlooking Emerald Bay at Lake Tahoe, Kimberly and I finally decided to take the hike down to the bottom. It was a blustery, cold day as we loaded up with energy bars, water, and our camera. The first thing we came across was the information sign letting us know the history of Vikingsholm.

Here’s how the sign read: Vikingsholm, a dream come true. Henry David Thoreau once said, “It is good to build castles in the air. Now, you must put foundations under them.” It went on to describe how Lora Knight made her dream a reality as she built what has become a tourist attraction in our day.

As we got in our car after the hike down and back, I thought, “That’s the power of a dream.” Yet I believe God wants us to dream bigger than elaborate vacation homes. This week at Twin Cities we’re going to talk about recalibrating our dreams. God calls us to dream. He calls us to build upon the rock of His Word and not the air of unsustainable promises.

In our daily Bible reading on Wednesday we read these words which I’ll end with because they are part of God’s desire for us. “How precious are your thoughts about me, O God! They are innumerable! I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand.”

I have a dream: I dream each of us will embrace the promise of God’s enduring love as spoken through the words of the Psalmist. When we do that it will recalibrate our dreams and put solid foundations under them. When we do that, we will end up loving God and people because that’s His dream for us.

Dreaming with you,

Pastor Ron
