Thinking about visiting?

Sometimes it is difficult to go somewhere new for the first time. You've been hearing a lot about New Wineskins, your interest is piqued...but will you feel comfortable?

Hopefully, this little view into a typical gathering will reassure you. (You may think, "O.K., this is the potluck portion, but then what?" Well, the view doesn't change! We sit together and pray, share, discuss, vote, learn...and keep going back to the potluck table!)

The Next Contract

Yesterday, the children's ministry leader from Emmaus Road Church, Danya Venjohn, met with me at Park to get the ball rolling on VBS. (Save the date: August 3-7) She encouraged Park to be ready to provide VBS families with "WHAT'S NEXT." She explained that her husband is in marketing and, while each contract secured is wonderful, the first thought upon achieving that one is "What can we provide the customer that will secure the NEXT contract?"

I could tell that I hadn't been thinking strategically for the kingdom, because this came to me as a surprise. I throw out this thought for prayer and consideration by our ministry team. Of course, we don't need job security, but neighbors need OUR SOURCE OF SECURITY. Pray that we might form and "leverage" relationships through the Vacation Bible School experience.

Remind Mark

Someone might want to remind Mark to bring the babysitting money on Sunday since I'll be gone ;)

A Silly Sidenote to 10:02

Mark spent a little extra time at home yesterday morning as the workcrews (three of them in and around our little house!) prepared for some demolition at the house. (We were clearing out the rooms that had to have holes cut in the walls to fish new electrical wires on the burnt circuit and the rooms that needed the ceilings taken down.) The 10:02 alarm on my phone went off and I noticed that Mark gave me a funny look. Later when we talked about it, turns out we both had the same thought..."Please God, NO MORE WORKERS!"

Mark remembered what I had forgotten! Did you catch my omission??
