A Rock to Remember

Posted by Tim :: Ministry News

I must admit. I'm not without words very often, but last Friday's Rock was such a huge surprise that I didn't know what to say.
In case you missed it, you can listen to the unexpected interruption by listening to the "Givers Anonymous" message at the Rock site.
What happened was Pat Sokoll, Nathan Meyer, Josh Cramer and Robert Olinger and Jeff Koenig from Mars Hill Church in Iowa City stepped up on stage dressed in black trench coats and, without saying a word, un-cuffed a briefcase from one of the brother’s wrists, cuffed it to mine, and then left as suddenly as they came. It was all a little on the weird side.
At first, I had no idea what was up, but then it came to me that this could be a major donor gift. So, I opened the briefcase (that weighed a "ton") and sure enough, it was packed full of wads of cash. What an amazing gift of generosity from a small, up-start church that itself is looking for a location to meet.
Along with that, The Rock itself spontaneously gave over $675 for a tribe of starving people in Northern Kenya. It will be sweet to see God fulfill His promise in Luke 6:38 that says, “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, it will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."
