This week was a little on the intense side at Verve as we covered the movie Zombieland. We talked about death, and seeking life, and sin, and walking away from Jesus, and that Jesus really is the only answer for us.

The crazy thing was that this was the first week in about a month that we didn’t do anything to serve or advertise to the community (no block parties, car washes, door hangers, etc.) and our attendance was up 25%. Thankfully, years ago God broke me of worrying about numbers and taught me to focus on being faithful to Him, and to “keep score” with the amazing stories He’s producing in people’s lives rather than the attendance. Because if my concern were the numbers, I’d be confused beyond belief!
