Welcome to the Greene Street Letters. It has become my venue for sharing what is going on at Vineyard Recovery Church. Don't let the word Church scare you. The Greene Street Letters is a daily posting to simply say that there is more to life than what you see. More to life than "stuff". My simple take of 60+ years of following Jesus. Some days were good days...some days I managed to get off in the ditch. He is worthy of the pursuit, so that is what I do........I pursue Jesus in everything I do. Not the Jesus of the church. Not the Jesus of the denomination. Nothing wrong with those things, but Jesus is so much more. Thanks for dropping by and I hope you return from time to time to stop and ponder your own relationship with Jesus. God on you....mb

Last Post For 2016

video
Greetings here on this last day of 2016.
Seems as though it were yesterday that everyone was running around all tore up about Y2K.
Society was going to crash...
The computers were all going to be useless...
And hard times were ahead...
Well, none of that happened, but I still believe that we are looking at some hard times out there. Not going to make predictions. Much rather hold on to Jesus' hand and move forward, than to run around saying the sky is going to fall. 


So what was 2016 all about, when it comes to God and His purposes for VRC?
I think maybe it was all about simply being obedient.
Did we carry out the mandate given to us by God to be salt and light.
Did we love those we came in contact with...not just on Saturday night, but in our everyday life.

Did we grow in Jesus....did we become a little more mature.
Did we study His word. And more than study....did we apply what we had learned.

In other words, did 2016 see us grow up in Christ.

2017 is about 19 hours away as of the time of this posting....
Some will ring in this new year completely oblivious to their need for Jesus...

The call that rests upon Vineyard ReCovery is to take this message out.
To love...
To tell our story...
To make ourselves available to God's Holy Spirit to work through with healing, deliverance and salvation....
And to worship the very One who has called us into this new life.


God on you...
