Some of my favorite Christ Church memories are from our annual Parish Retreat. Who can forget Christine Warner, Jodi Wicker and Drake Dowsett doing an interpretive dance to Cindi Lauper’s 80s classic “Time After Time”? If you don’t already have our next retreat on your calendar, save the date now to worship, play, grow and make new friends: October 15-17 in Spicewood, Texas.
I mentioned in a recent sermon that there is a global prayer movement gathering strength, organizing “Houses of Prayer” where people are praying 24/7, week after week, month after month. If you want to learn more, listen to this podcast with Pete Greig, one of the founders of the movement.
Need healing? The last in our summer series of prayer meetings will focus on worship and all aspects of healing: physical, emotional, relational and spiritual. Join us for a Healing Service, August 8 at the Austin House of Prayer. I will give a short teaching on healing, then we will spend time in worship, and praying for those who seek healing.
