This Week @ Twin Cities Church - Friend Day!

Hey Everyone,

I’ve been hearing stories from several people about the one person or several people they have been praying for this year. Remember, we’re praying for one person and asking God to use us in helping them embrace the forgiveness and grace made possible through Jesus Christ. One man has already seen God answer his prayer as the top person on his list said “Yes” to Jesus. Isn’t that great?! He’s now actively praying for others God has put on his heart.

This Sunday is Friend Day at Twin Cities. We’ve been doing Friend Days now for 21 years. This Sunday is also our 21st anniversary. I hope you’re thinking of those you plan to invite Sunday as I begin our new series called “Reality.” I’ll talk about the reality of Heaven, and it’s my goal that all of us will be drawn toward this place that is the ultimate reality for all those who have chosen Jesus.

I want to make you aware of a television show definitely worth watching. This is especially meaningful after our recent experience with 40 Days In The Word. I hope you will watch it, and make sure to tell your friends about it as well. It promises to be a great way to help people see how reliable and impactful the Bible really is.

The Bible is an epic five-week television mini-series premiering March 3, 2013 on the History Channel from Emmy Award winning husband and wife team, Mark Burnett and Roma Downey. For two hours each Sunday night millions of viewers will see the Bible come to life in a way never before seen. The final episode of the series will air on Easter Sunday and will feature the death and resurrection of Jesus. The Bible is a project close to Mr. Burnett's heart. In the past couple of years the 52-year-old former paratrooper says he has become deeply religious, a transition he credits to Roma Downey, his wife since 2007. “It wasn’t until I met Roma that I truly understood my faith and it’s been a dynamic shift for me,” Mr. Burnett said. “It is our obligation to tell the stories as written,” he says. “The stories are so brilliant and compelling. If you know the Bible, you’ll enjoy seeing the stories come to life. If you’ve never read the Bible, I think you’ll love the stories. There’s a reason the Bible is the most widely read book in the world.”

Learning to walk in God's reality,
