What is first?

As just about anyone that stumbles across this little corner of Al Gore's creation known as the world wide web knows Our church is in the process of having a Sacred Gathering. If you are like me I really did not know what in the world a "Sacred Gathering" was, I did not know the secret handshake or the super secert password to get in. The only thing I knew is that this had happened once before and I missed it (horrible case of poision ivy, with some sort of fungus growing on it) any I was scared to participate because I did not know what God had planned. But Alison and I are fasting and praying, searching for what God has next for us and our family.

The first night on Sunday the leader for the gathering made a statement that I can not get out of my head. He basicly said God does not set a priortiy list like so many of us try to do. God, Family, and Country is not how God wants us to live our lives. God wants ALL OF US. ALL OF ME!!! Then as we live for God we begin to see that we need God to love our family through us. WOW. Its not about the way I view the things that are important in my life, It becomes focused on God and allow Him to arrange the focus on other things.

What is first in your life? In Mine?

Good to hear from you. Because I read your blog, and Pat's blog, and Seth's blog, and Alison's blog, I have been reading about the Sacred Gathering. I hope God spoke to you guys in a mighty way.
