A year and a half ago, I met Bruce and Heather Moore. I had somehow caught wind of their story and was so inspired that we invited them out to California to attend Saddleback’s leadership conference. Bruce had served on staff at two different suburban megachurches, but God had called he and Heather into a new ministry venture leading a dying church. Their new congregation in downtown Tampa had one year to live, and over that year, God worked a miracle through their leadership and began authoring a new story for Christ Fellowship.
Some stories are timeless, like this one, written by one Ella Grace, my eight-year-old daughter. Enjoy.
In the gospel of John, chapter nine, Jesus healed a man who was blind from birth. He happened to do it on the sabbath, which made the religious people mad, so they interrogated the formerly blind man about his healing experience. As they sought to peg Jesus as a sinner, they questioned the man, looking for something of which they could accuse Jesus. They told him, “We know he is a sinner.”
