One of my goals for this blog is "To expose my readers to a variety of spiritually beneficial topics, books, articles, thoughts, and people." Periodically I want to expose you to people, pastors, and authors whom I believe will be a great benefit and blessing to you.
Today I would like to introduce to you a good friend of mine and fellow Pastor, Josh Litton. Josh is currently the Pastor of Creekside Baptist Church in Scappoose, Oregon. However, the reason I want you to meet Josh is that you might become a friend and supporter of him, either, financially, prayerfully, or in sweet Christian fellowship.
Josh is winding down his ministry at Creekside in order to follow God's leading to plant a new church and disciple people in Chicago, IL. Yes, I know that is borderline certifiable crazy, but so was God slaying His own Son in order to redeem my soul from the bondage of sin.
Josh and his new bride Erin will be moving to Chicago in September. He is new to blogging and I want to ask you to hop over to his blog, Josh Litton Blog and become a follower and leave a comment. Josh says the purpose of his blog is "Josh Litton Blog exists in order to be as useful for Jesus Christ as possible to the world and to the church. I'd like to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org."
Josh also has an organization called Christ for Chicago. Check out the website at ChristforChicago.org. You can become a part of this venture and receive regular updates and prayer requests all the while laying up treasures in heaven - without ever leaving your living room, or den, or office, or kitchen table, or where ever your computer is.
Mark Twain once said, ""It is hopeless for the occasional visitor to try to keep up with Chicago. She outgrows her prophecies faster than she can make them."( - Mark Twain, 1883) Let's pray for this couple as they head east to "The Windy City" and for the church that they trust the Holy Spirit will give birth to for the glory of God.
