As a continuing service for those of you who faithfully read this blog, and who also like to come to worship prepared, here is the scripture I'll be teaching from this Sunday: 1 Peter 4:7-11. Just as an extra little challenge, the message this week will have three one word points. Try to figure out what those words might be based on the scripture.
I read several blogs from other pastors everyday, and it seems that I use bullet points more than most people. That means that either I am innovative and on the cutting edge of things, or I have a hard time organizing my thoughts into a single coherent statement. I'm pretty sure it's the second one. With that in mind, here's some more bullet points:
- Our worship team is awesome. I know I talked a little about this the other day, but the servant's attitude and lack of spotlight hogs makes our team unique. We had a creative meeting on Tuesday night to work through worship ideas for June, and I was amazed at how 8 people sat around a table throwing out ideas and not once did anyone get their feelings hurt or try to put themselves ahead of the needs of the church. I am blessed to get to work with them.
- Idol's down to two. I haven't written much on AI over the last few weeks because the show just gets more boring to me the less contestants there are. Next week's final is David vs. David, and for the first time in a couple of seasons there wasn't a big shock about who made it to the final two. I like David Cook to win, but part of me hopes the other David wins just to see his expressions when they announce it. He makes me laugh, and I don't think he's trying to.
- Relay for Life is tomorrow night! If you haven't made plans yet for how you are going to spend your Friday night be sure to come out to Dooley Field (behind Chandler Creek Elementary) and enjoy the fun. If you have already made other plans try to change them. Relay for Life is one of those times where the whole community gets behind the same cause, and it's a cool thing to be a part of. There will be lots of food, live music, bouncy rides for kids, and all the proceeds go to the American Cancer Society.
It's looking like Donny and I might get to go see some of the BMW Golf Pro - Am today. If we do I'll let you know what it's like.
