The Circle Maker in Reality

Circle Maker - Mark BattersonI love the fact that Mark Batterson’s books aren’t just academic. He lives out the principles he writes about on a day-to-day basis; or perhaps, better to say, the principles he already lives out on a day-to-day basis get written about in his books. This article appeared on Mark’s blog on October 10th, but I completely missed it until last night. These are the stories I love to celebrate here:

It was nearly five years ago that we started circling the Lincoln Theatre in prayer. And over the last few years, we’ve had several all church events where we’ve gathering our different locations at the Lincoln.  We also tried to pursue it on a weekly basis, but it didn’t pan out because of cost and availability. But like the Israelites who circled Jericho, we kept circling.  We had full faith that God would open the door at the right time.  That time is now. We had our inaugural service at the Lincoln last Sunday, and it’s one of those moments you need to mark as a milestone. In a nutshell, God is faithful.  It was one small step, one giant leap. Can’t wait to see what God is going to do.

So far. So God.
