Forge Was Good

Several years ago, Janie & I had envisioned a worship event very much like Forge was tonight. It was really sweet to see it actually happen and I'm sure she would have liked it very much. It was just a joy to set up and watch the college-aged people filtering into this cool little downtown venue called The Brick Box for the purpose of worshiping God. We had a good time of singing and the Jared gave a really good talk from 1 Peter 2:9: "But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light." He challenged us all to, among several other things, see ourselves as God sees us:

-chosen people
-royal priesthood
-holy nation
-God's special possession

We're really hoping and praying that this would be the start of something special in His Kingdom work here in Vermont!


  1. Very cool! I'm glad it got off to a great start. When do you plan to do it again?

  2. Feb 26. Will you be able to attend?

    Becca and Dan will be home for this one! Huzzah!

    Here's a link to the Facebook page for it:!/ForgeVermont

  3. I know it's just a typo, but I love that I am called "the Jared" in your post.

    Accept no substitutes! :-)

  4. Dude, you are The Jared! The typo was in neglecting to capitalize the "T!"
