Recipe for a Great Church


Thank you to Janet Collins and Charlotte Burk, who published the 2013 Garnett Family Recipe Book. They asked for a recipe from me, so here’s what I gave them that you can see in the front of the book when you buy yours! Proceeds go to pay down Garnett debt! Ask about the cookbook by emailing Janet: garnettinfo@gmail.com. Get copies at the Tulsa Workshop this weekend or after a Garnett worship Sundays in Cafe Mosaic.

  1. Yes, it goes along with Eat This Book. Yesterday I read this during sermon and then showed Jill’s worn cookbook with the pages covered with butter and sugar, liked a page and said what God asked Ezekiel, Jeremiah, John to do is “eat the scroll,” and the Bible is not a recipe book for happy living, nor are we to pick at it like cotton candy for all the good parts. God wants to get the recipe book INSIDE us. He wants us to eat the story. So during Passover time, it’s a great time to think about how the Passover is a story God called Israel to eat. We are what we eat. Remember that poster from the Cafe-torium in elementary school? Israel was redeemed from slavery and that is the Passover meal. The Passover became the Last Supper and the Last Supper became the First Communion.
