Bob Lupton to speak at Park Community Church

I have been with Bob Lupton today at Mars Hill Bible Church. He spoke tonight and we got to hang out throughout the day. He told us he has been diagnosed with cancer and asked for prayers for his healing. Please join me to pray for his complete healing and that he can carry on his work in the city of Atlanta. He has devoted his life to Christian community development.

Those of you who live in Chicago can catch Bob at Park Community Church at 9:00 and 11:00 Sunday morning. Park meets at the Francis Parker School at 2233 N. Clark (at Webster).

I am also with Daniel Hill, the pastor of the River City Community Church, at this conference in Michigan and Daniel gave me an overview of the sermon he will preach this Sunday about Cornelius and Peter. You don't want to miss it. So I suggest, Park at 9:00 and River City at 11:00!

I would suggest being faithful in attendance and service to the local church that you have committed to and then if you have time left over attend these other opportunities or order the audio of them.
To many people are running around to here the "best" word and are lacking in commitment to their local body.
Just food for thought.

Point well taken. I agree. I'm committed to River City.

I heard Bob this Sunday at Park, where Emily and I attend. Man, he was great. It was such an education for me. I have a tendency while doing ministry in the city to not have a long view, if that makes sense. Hearing Bob Lupton yesterday really taught me some things I didn't know about gentrification and some systems in place in some communities that are not just to the poor, long-term residents of those communities.
