SITGA on the move July 2009

Susan from Willow Creek shared the following when asked if SITG had a spiritual impact on her, “It has been an honor to be part of a SITG family and be connected. I have found more connection in my SITG family than in any small group or area of the church that I have served in. It really does feel like family.” (Willow Creek in Chicago is regarded as one of the most influential churches in the U.S.) PTL!

I am also happy to report the Catholic Diocese of Eastern Oklahoma is implementing SITG. Some 61,000 strong in terms of membership.

  1. I was about 20 years old when I had the most unuasual experience of my entire life. My older brother had past away several years before from a car accident. My other brother was home from the military and it was getting late. I was living with my mom and dad at the time. I decided I was going to sleep in my mom’s room because she worked overnight and her bed was very comfy. My bed felt like sleeping on a sheet of cardboard spread out over wire springs. So I crawled into my mom’s bed and got comfortable then realized I had to use the bathroom. The bathroom was in my mom’s room. My dad always left the kitchen light on every night. The light illuminated from the hallway and illuminated my mom’s room slightly. I thought in my head time to get up. I was looking at the bathroom with nothing else on my mind when a shadow absorbed the light from the kitchen. I seen this out of the corner of my eye and when I looked to my left it was walking along the side of the bed. At first I thought it was my brother that was home from the Army. I waited for the bathroom light to come on to rest assure that it was only him using the bathroom. The shadow walked toward the bathroom and my eyes lost it. I looked around the room to find it again and there it was at the foot of the bed standing over me. It was so clear I was able to see the outline of the arms torso legs and knuckles of the hands. I still thought it was Todd my brother getting ready to jump on the bed to scare me so I raised my foot back to kick it. Then it rose up from the floor and disappeared into the cieling. My heart was racing and I started praying and left the lights on all night. At that time of my life I was living in sin drinking on the weekends and having premarital sex. I told my mom about it and she thought it was my brother that died in a car wreck watching over me. I didn’t have the feeling that it was a goog presence in the room that night but am still not sure what it was. I know to this day what I saw and it was no dream no imagination but the real deal. I think that the night I saw that has changed my life to this day. I am now a christian. -Scott from Oklahoma
