I recently came across this beautiful song by Sara Bareillas, from the musical "Waitress". It speaks to the critical importance of a nurturing environment for dreams to be cultivated and grown. Basically, the song shares that dreams need a "Soft Place to Land."
It is my goal, everyday, as Pastor of First Baptist, to foster this reality in our congregation! We can be that "soft place to land" for God's dreams to grow inside and take hold of you! We can be that sense of place where God's dreams can shape and mold you into who God sees you can become! A place where hurt and shattered dreams can be mended. A place that knows that with God, "Nothing's impossible child!" That's what dreams need. That's what we are fostering here at First Baptist!
I'm a follower of Christ, husband, father, friend, pastor, story teller, asker of questions, inspired by biblical narratives, social justice advocate, sports enthusiast, drinker of over priced coffee and general seeker of God's redemptive possibilities. Yeah, that about covers it. (If you discover something else, let me know!)
