One of my former interns, Dylan Hope, used to greet me when I came off stage with a funny little recap of my message he liked to call, “Why Runks, Why.” Sometimes it was serious, sometimes it was hilarious but it was always fun and every once in a while it was productive. So I’ve decided to bring a revamped version of “Why Runks, Why” to the Runks.com experience by expanding it from a recap of a few minutes on stage to a recap of my events and experiences on the road.
So join me now for the first installment of a little recap of my crazy life on the road I like to call, “Why Runks, Why.” – March 14, 2010
-Cross Training Weekend â€¢ First Baptist Church â€¢ West Memphis, AR
-Wanting to cancel and stay home with Nick after his car wreck last week.
-Going anyway because I knew God wanted me to.
-Ministering to two students dealing with some deeply painful junk and leading them from hopelessness to hope.
-Making a “quick” Starbucks run with the seniors that turned into a trip to another state and an encounter with a gangbanger fond of inappropriate gestures.
-Student Pastor Matt Neyman a.k.a. “Cracka Wit Attitude”
-Taking care of business with a quick trip to Graceland on the way to the airport.
-A bunch of teens getting saved!
-God moving powerfully. Students ministering to students in the most genuine way I think I’ve ever seen!
-Sharing with parents about Nick’s wreck and challenging them to love on their teens and never take them for granted.
I can’t wait to see what God does next week!!
God Bless Y’all – Runks
