Exodus 34:29-35
Face not radiating after first encounter with God
Met with God face-to-face and no shining
Exodus 32:16 the tablets were the work of God
The author feels it necessary to delineate this
The second one, Moses snag God form a partnership that had miraculous results
When you work with God, when your own blood, sweat, and tears are in the work, it means so much more
My brain and my joints remember it
What happens when someone you respect and look up to asks you to help then create something?
They say, “I need your help” and your soul leaps
I talk about my grandfather Harold Good a lot even though he’s no longer with us
If I think I am measuring up to him, I feel good about myself
Going down to the wood cellar and co-creating with him
I absolutely
Mr. Mitchky was running woodshop while drinking odorless liquid (vodka) from this magic thermos

He was transformed by partnering with God
Something happens in your soul when the Creator of the universe invites us to co-create

Jesus is only one of 2 rabbis to seek out disciples

Rob’s Email

Just a couple of thoughts from tonight:

  • We don’t want to try to sell anything. We’re seeing what God is already doing and want to be a part of it–we don’t want our congregation to miss out on a chance to be a part of it.
  • Why did we pick this opportunity? We’ve been looking for a church plant opportunity for a couple of years because we don’t want to become “ingrown” or just focused on ourselves. Last year we could have been involved in a plant in Vegas but the pieces never came together. This year we met Moses early in the process and have watched him grow and build this new plant over the last few months.
  • This is a great investment. Because we’re partnering with 2 other churches and the denomination we only have to raise $20,000 to plant a new church.


We’ve seen what God is already doing and we don’t want our people to miss out
Las Vegas church last year was a bad starting point for us
This is a great investment for us $20,000

My grandfather had a John Deere tractor
He asked me one day if I wanted to drive
I drove it into a ditch, but he didn’t chastise me
He just told me to do it right
