I spent portions of last week with new church planters who had come to Chicago for training with our denomination. On Sunday evening Maggie joined two other church planter spouses to talk about their experiences and what the pastors and their families should consider as they go into this unpredictable work. She was, of course, her typical thoughtful and keeping-it-real self.
I’m in the middle of a few days of travel to visit different church planters in Illinois, Indiana, and St. Louis. Earlier today I spent a few minutes at the Old Courthouse, the site of the Dred Scott cases in the mid 1800′s.
