Competitive sports reveal athletic prowess. Nothing silences the critics, the doubters, or the trash-talker quite like the demonstration of unequaled skill. Those who do it best practice the fundamentals over and over again so that when they step on the court their play speaks for itself.
So, too, in the game of life. Our words and actions reflect how well we’ve practiced the fundamentals of our faith. Our Sunday morning game-face may quickly fade in the heat of Monday morning’s onslaught. But the world is full of critics, doubters and trash-talkers who are watching how we play the game. Do you have the street-level credibility to stand up to their scrutiny?
Street Cred: Just Show Me is the Winter 2011 IronWorks series kicking off this Friday morning, January 7th and next Wednesday evening, January 12th. Roger Thompson, Sr. Pastor of Berean Baptist Church, and I co-teach at IronWorks, a non-denomination gathering of Twin Cities men for fellowship and the practical application of God’s Word to everyday issues.
If you live in the Twin Cities, especially the south suburbs, we’d love to have you join us for our series kick off on Friday, January 7th at 6:30 a.m. (IronWorks Sunrise) or on Wednesday, January 12th at 5:30 p.m. (IronWorks Sunset). All sessions are held at Berean Baptist Church in Burnsville.
If you can’t make it to an IronWorks live, you can still be a part of the experience because all of the sessions are available on audio and video at the IronWorks website. They’re a great resource for men’s study groups in your church too.
I look forward to seeing you there.
