I came across this little piece of history in the archives last week. Left to right in the back-row: Steve Lutes, Derek, Pat Black. Front: Me, Jeff Gibson, Shawn Denny.
Go ahead. Laugh it up. Gather your comments. I’ll wait.
Now, let me tell you what rocks me about this picture.
1st: It was at my first year of church camp and 3 weeks earlier, God had hi-jacked my world and set me on the path that I am today. To say that season was profound in my life would be an understatement.
3rd: Some of these guys were my first taste of real community and are still part of my life today. Shawn works at Taylor University, Pat is in ministry in Moscow, and Jeff kicks some IT bootay in Nashville. They are good friends to me and are STILL chasing God.
I was, and am, proud to call them friends.
