[photo via]This Sunday, I’m preaching in my hometown of Missoula, Montana, and I’d appreciate your prayers. Three to four thousand people from about 35 different churches are gathering for one big service at the state fair, and they’ve asked me to preach. It’s an extremely humbling and exciting opportunity, and I want to serve well. A local newspaper, The Missoulian, recently published an article with a few more details on the event:
After being invited by South Hills Evangelical Church, Munson will come back to Missoula to give the sermon at the Western Montana Fair. … "I'm really looking forward to it," says Munson. "I get to show my kids where I grew up. I'm just a country boy at heart." Munson says his sermon will focus on the Bible and God. The cool thing about this service is the churches of Missoula coming together to worship, says Munson. "I love to see the unity of churches worshipping together," he says. "We want to show that unity to the city of Missoula."There will be many people there who know me as a very different person, as I was a total pagan while living in Missoula. Please pray for my message, the churches, the non-Christians that come to hear me, and my family. I imagine it’s going to be a spiritually intense week. The last time I was at the fair I was a drunk 17-year-old illegally gambling on horses. Jesus is faithful. The service will be Sunday, Aug. 14, at 10 a.m. in the fairground grandstands.
