I Was Blown Away.

June 9, 2015 — 1 Comment

Rudy Gonzalez has an amazing story of redemption. From a stubborn heart to an unbelievable man of God that I am proud to say is my friend. Rudy’s story should be a testimony to us all about grace. I love it when he says, “I was blown away.” I remember that day very clearly and it’s because of these kinds of stories that I continue to seek God’s will in this church-planting adventure at Two Cities Church.

Annette is a powerful story of God meeting us in our darkest moments and raising us from death to life again. I love it when she talks about getting out from under her addiction and asking God to take away her obsession to use. She says, “He did and my life was changed.” Annette is part of our Guest Services team at Two Cities Church, part of my community group and a friend. Watch her story.

Have you ever, because of what you see in the world or as a result of your own experience asked, “How can there be a God?” I have and so has Mauro. If you haven’t, it’s probably either because you’ve never really given much thought to the existence of God or you’re too scared to face the conclusions you might draw from asking such a question. I’ve asked it and so has Mauro.

Everybody man has a “Father Wound.” It’s because we’re imperfect fathers. It’s because our fathers and their fathers were imperfect. It’s part of the broken-sinful nature of the world we live in, but the story doesn’t have to end there. Everyone can find a perfect father in God and my prayer is that Mauro’s story helps you comes to terms with God’s perfect nature.

Mauro’s story starts with Catholic High School and his relationship with his own father. He had a difficult time and didn’t feel like it was possible for God to be a father, because he was comparing God to how he felt about his relationship with his dad. But then something changed.

On November 22, 2013 I had the pleasure of baptizing Mauro at the first ever baptism gathering with Two Cities Church.
