First day at Mars Hill...

So today was our first day at Mars Hill & I couldn't have been more excited - just to hear what Pastor Mark is teaching on. The next nine weeks he's teaching from questions that he let the entire church vote on - questions that they wanted answered by him. This week was answering the question about birth control - what is his personal view & the church's official stance. His reply was very thoughtful and informative. This is something I'm passionate about and have read a great deal on and I still learned a ton from his message. Also - it's so encouraging that our pastor can take a message on birth control & turn it into a very serious oppurtunity for salvation to be preached. So sweet.

Feel free to download the free podcast, but I'm attaching a link to his notes that he made public. Hope it's helpful!

Wow, that blog is a tough pill to swallow. (Get it? Pill?) Just kidding.

Did he say anything about the patch or the ring?

pastor mark did not speak directly to these two, but it is my understanding that they both fall within level 4 (potentially abortive) as they are essentially variants of the pill (use the same "ingredients").

I enjoyed catching up on your blog tonight. Sounds like you have had quite an adventurous Christmas and New Year's. I'm praying for your family's new beginning=)

I read the article that he wrote on that subject. It was very enlightening. I hope you are enjoying Seattle. My friend Brooke and I are considering the Greece/Isreal trip with Mark.
