I love Sundays.I wake up before the sunrise, I read my Bible, I pray, and I go over the sermon that I have the honor of preaching to us at Imprint Church at 9 and 10:45 AM. I do all of this with Christ-centered expectancy because when we gather together, I am convinced that Christ is with us (Revelation 2:1). He is about the work of changing our lives each and every day.

So you can imagine what a bummer it was for me to wake up last Sunday morning and find out that Woodinville was without power, completely dark, and somewhat apocalyptic looking! We waited until the last minute to cancel our Gatherings, but then we decided for the sake of safety to make that call (after witnessing a couple cars flying through uncontrolled intersections, it was confirmed that it was not a good day to be out and about!). However, there’s good news: next Sunday is only a few days away. We get to gather again to make much of Jesus and worship Him together. It’s a privilege to do that and I’m thankful you’re a part of it. Moreover, I hope you have a Christ-centered expectancy for gathering together, too.

I hope you’ll join us this weekend at Imprint Church as we worship and jump into Exodus 3 together. It’s a pivotal part of the story of the Exodus that you won’t want to miss. If you have friends you’d like to invite, please do. I like to think of the church as a family that always has houseguests! Quite honestly, I expect more acts of God to happen this Sunday in the lives of each and every one of us, even more powerful than a storm that knocked out the power and kept us apart last week!

See you Sunday.
