Poolside might just be the best place to write a sermon or the next great Christian novel.
Head out the back door, down the sidewalk, past the fountains and there it is. A shimmering rectangular shaped swimming pool with two lounge pools and a large spa nearby. This swimming pool sits behind the home of Joel and Victoria Osteen in the River Oaks area of Houston, Texas.
It’s a mere 10 minute drive to the office at Lakewood Church.
After a refreshing swim, his mind is alert. His heart is receptive. Mr. Osteen will never be the same. Never, never, never!
Joel Osteen assumed pastor duties at Lakewood Church following the passing of his father. Lakewood has grown to over 40,000 members with 10,000 or more attending each Sunday service. The Osteen’s message reaches millions at services around the world, through television broadcasts and dozens of Christian classic novels.
I wonder if anyone has been baptized in that pool?
