It’s not a term everyone wants. It’s often associated with “uncool,” “old-fashioned,” or “out of touch.” But I’m proud to say I’m old school. I’m not trying to bring back the good ol’ days, I’m not against change or progress. I actually enjoy both of those things a great deal. I realize there are lots of things we used to value that aren’t worth much any more.Times have changed. They’ve been replaced. I get it. I’m not trying to get everyone else to adapt to my personal preferences and I’m not trying to scold young people to be more like previous generations. That’s not the point.
Everyone can get in the game–you don’t have to sit in the stands and watch. At Milestone, we believe every person’s contribution is significant and we’re better when we’re all doing our part. Jesus places each one of us as living stones…and all the stones build the house. We are an everyone church.
No one can avoid pain, but it’s how we choose to respond that makes all the difference. Terri Edwards is no stranger to tragedy. In 2007 she lost her first husband after a 13-month battle with cancer and two years later got the devastating news that her 17-year old son, Jonathan, had leukemia. He spent the greater part of the next 6 months in the hospital dealing with numerous complications and in October of 2009 passed away.
