secret recipe for fajitas the darling of the Yuppie barbecue pit Here it is Couple of pounds of skirt steak Bottle of Italian dressing Bottle of burgundy wine Any other kind of spices you like especial ly lots of garlic its kosher Now spice up your meat and poke a bunch of holes in the steaks with a fork Mix the wine and the Italian dressing together Find a pan big enough for the steaks to lie flat and cover them up with the marinade Let them soak at least 24 hours occasionally turning them and allowing them to become com pletely saturated After soaking start a hot fire that should include some mesquite wood because it bums hotter than most others Slap those steaks on the fire and sear the outside so the juices stay in They will cook fast so dont bum them And now enjoy My my Dont that taste good Many people have tasted them and declared them the best they have ever had without know ing exactly what was in them Others would nev er eat them because of the youknowwhat they are soaked in One church staff I served loved them so much that they asked me to fix them at our annual retreat Imagine the surprise when I showed up with a gallon of burgundy to soak all the steaks But the wine is the most important ingredient It is the wine that tender izes the tough meat you see And the longer the meat soaks the more tender the meat becomes The wine mixes with the spices and oil soaking all the way through the tough steaks and depositing deep within a unique yet indescribable savor I know some Christians that need a good soaking like that In new wine of course the kind of wine the Holy Spirit of God provides The kind of wine that the bible describes in Ephesians And do not be drunk with be filled with the Spirit speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs singing and mak ing melody in your heart to the Lord giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ submitting to one another in the fear of God Recently there has been an outpouring of new wine on the church that hasnt been seen since Dennis Gallaher the Welsh and Azusa revivals in the early 1900s It is not contained in any one denomination though many have been affected The character istics are classic signs of renewal which predicates true revival There is a new understanding of repentance a return to fasting and prayer a new release of joy vibrant worship public confes sion of sin and marvelous demonstrations of Gods power that changes peoples lives There is a powerful soaking going on in the church today So powerful that many question whether or not it is legitimate After all most of us really dont like the idea that God can come into our churches and mess up our little pro grams But history tells us that pouring out His Spirit on tough old flesh is something He loves to do One pastor put it this way after renewal visited his staunchly conservative church He said For years we prayed for revival The only problem was that we forgot to ask God what it would look like when it came Any legitimate study of revival demonstrates that revivals are not quite affairs that are controlled by mere men Revivals are the pouring out of Gods Spirit like at Pentecost And by the way there was good reason why they accused those early saints of having a little too much new wine The Spirit of God is no respecter of prideful flesh So let me give you another recipe A recipe for lv renewal and revival Take the Church of Jesus in New I Corinthians An abundant amount of the oil of the Spirit Psalms 131 A healthy dose of the New Wine of the it Mark The unique spices that make our churches tinctive but one in the Spirit I Corinthians Now allow the conviction of the Lord to pierce your heart and mine Sprinkle on the spices that make our congregations distinctive Pray for the oil of the Spirit and the New Wine joy to saturate and tenderize our tough old Pray that the entire Body of Christ in our city marinate in the Spirit of God for a time Now pray that God will blow on the hearts of pastors throughout our city and ignite a white hot passion for Jesus And then when the fire isV hottest turn them loose on congregations to sear the love of God inside every heart Who knows Maybe genuine revival will out 1 My my Now dont that sound good Dennis Gallaher is the pastor Fellowship Church in New Habitat contributions Patrick

Good News message The childrens department of Southlake Baptist Church of Canyon Lake is planning a balloon release to be held on Sunday Sept 17 1995 at on the church grounds The children will be releasing approximately 200 helium balloons each adorned with a message of the saving power of Jesus Christ We will have a prayer before the balloons are released and ask the Lord to carry them to those that need to hear His said Karen Taylor childrens director at Southlake Prior to releasing the balloons the children at Southlake will stuff postcards with their names on them into the balloons The finder will be urged to write his or her return address on the postage paid card and mail it back to the church In this way the children will be able to track how far the balloons journeyed The child whose balloon goes the furthest will be given a prize The balloon release was inspired by a story out of Live Oaks Calif A 5yearold girl by the name of Desiree missed her recently deceased father and decided to send a message to him in heaven via a balloon Desiree sent a Little Mer maid balloon on a most inspiring journey Four days and 4300 miles later the balloon finally ran out of gas On the east coast of Canada on Prince Edward Island in a town called Mermaid the balloon was finally found One week later Desiree received a letter and a gift from Wade and Donna McKenna the family that found her balloon I remember hearing that the letter Desiree received told her that God had used the McKenna family to let her know that her daddy loved her and was thinking about her said Karen Taylor The childrens department at Southlake would like to extend an invitation for children throughout the community to come out on Sept 17 and send off some balloons 1 believe those balloons will go

The second Saturday night every month at 6 First Protestant Church has a Country Western Gospel Service in the Family Life Center This Saturday nights theme is Light en Up and In developing the Satur day night services special consideration was given to many peoples concerns and dislikes for the traditional Sunday morning worship services I dont like the crowds especially people I dont 1 dont like all the formal read ing and the I dress up for work all week I want to relax and be casual on I want to enjoy being with my kids on Sunday morning not have to worry about keeping them quiet in Im not a morning per I just dont have I dont like the musty smell of church I feel hypocritical when I go to church sometimes and I have no intention of going all the The people are too dont understand the language of I talk to God better in private rather than public What if 1 would like might want to come What 1 hear might change way of Thats only a few of the many reasons given for not attending a Sunday morning worship service Each person has their own personal rea of which are too big for God Jesus did not always want to be with crowds most of the time He taught oneonone and in small groups He spoke to people on a level they could understand He didnt get dressed up to perform His lifechanging miracles or present The Sermon on the Mount or partake of Holy Communion Lords or pray He just met people and they knew He cared in the purest deepest way about their lives He had fun as He sang favorite songs and was inspired I by others as He watched and listened He ate at feasts banquets picnics or simple suppers He talked to His Father all the time about thing There is no doubt that meeting God will change you God is in the business of changing and rearranging us all for the purpose
