RIP Back to the Future Set and Bihops Schnase's book

Lamentations! Sounds like the Universal studios burned. As an honorary resident of Hill Valley, I mourn today.

Also--I started a sermon series and book study of the "Five Practices of Fruitful Congregations," which OK Conf. has used as a foundation of its strategic plan for all local churches. The study tonight had about 8 discuss Radical Hospitality. It was a great conversation, and the folks had some good insights into our church. I'm looking forward to the rest of the conversation.

    I'm glad the first discussion of Five Practices went well. There's also a website, that has some resources and stories and study guides. I hope you'll feel free to contribute your own story of new ministries stimulated by the Five Practices. Blessing, R Schnase
    PS. Sorry about the fire...Back to the Future was a family favorite here, too.

  2. Thanks for the comment, Bishop. I had found the resource and used it to help prepare for my own sermon series.

    By the way, the title of this post is a non-sequitur. Your book is very much alive!
