Jesus Christ is Lord!
the Gathering...oooh, it is a gettin' close now!!
Everybody involved with the Gathering must determine to:
1) intensely pray for each other for protection, guidance, wisdom of God - especially for those directly involved in the program (preacher, music, testimonies, counselors, security, etc. - all the time!
2) keep any and all negative opinions to themselves! There will be plenty of time for evaluation after the event!
3) spend quality time with their families, i.e. pray for the Gathering with spouses & children!
4) smile a lot!
5) hand out all invitations and put up all posters!
6) wear that black "the Gathering" T-Shirt in public, especially where young folks gather!
7) plan to pick up and bring lost teenagers to the meeting!
8) volunteer to be involved in "Follow Up" efforts on Sunday & Monday following the Gathering.
9) eat right, go to bed early each night, turn off the TV, don't watch or go to some ol' nasty movie - exception: you can watch Fireproof again!
10) read 1 Corinthians chapter 1!
11) attempt to share Christ with someone this week!
12) praise the Lord, for He is good and His Kingdom is everlasting!
