Sunday, October 11 is my thirty-ninth birthday, the twentieth anniversary of my salvation (the exact date is known only by God), and the thirteenth anniversary of Mars Hill Church. So, on that day we will air at all campuses a special one-hour sermon from Acts 17 that I preached live this summer while standing on Mars Hill in Athens.
If there were a Mars Hill Church then tomorrow would be the twentieth anniversary. But there is no Mars Hill now, although Mark Driscoll can celebrate another birthday. To remember the anniversary that cannot be because there is no longer a Mars Hill we'll have a series up tomorrow considering a lot of things said by one of the co-founders, the one who left the most words for the record to be considered.
