Good morning...

I've started meeting with a guy every Thursday morning at Cracker Barrel in Arlington to do some discipleship. This was only our second week, but he's a sharp dude who is pretty excited about what God is doing in his life, and that's fun to see.

This morning, one of the waitresses saw our Bibles and asked if we could answer some questions for her. It turns out, several of the waitresses spend their mornings chatting in the back about spiritual things. Several of them are believers, and several of them are "interested" in Christianity, but "don't buy it."

This morning, the waitresses were discussing end-time events, and what the Bible said about where the world is headed (I don't know what started the conversation, but bet you ten bucks it included the words "Barack Obama" or "Sarah Palin" and "Antichrist"). It was pretty fun to have a five or ten minute discussion with the Cracker Barrel waitress about what the Bible says. The waitress took my Bible to the back to show the other waitresses what she had found.

More than anything, I think it's absolutely great that those waitresses are excited about discussing spiritual things in their spare time. They said it had been the topic of conversation for a while, which indicates they're able to do it with a level of respect that allows the discussions to continue without the waitresses who "don't buy it" complaining to management.

God is working - at McKinney Church, at Lockheed Martin, in teachers lounges across the country, and at Cracker Barrel. Are you engaged in what He's doing?

That is so awesome, thank you for the reminder that God is working everywhere and would love to have us engaging more people in these types of conversations!

Well, I have to say that I am not engaged in what He is doing before 9 AM. That's my bad. I probably should be.
