It was a great weekend and the service's went well. Big Church talked about Sex! Little Church talked about friendship and we ended the evening with the Lord's Supper. I am guessing we had over 100 people there and our teens almost filled up 3 tables! I love the separated coming together for the Lord's supper. It is an effort as opposed to à la carte at the end of a service where the experience somehow feels weakened. When our PARTners left the house last night, they knew what and where they were going and they made a decision to attend and participate. I feel this is one more way we answer Jesus prayer for us to be united as one, like Him and the Father are one. Look at what Paul tells us here: 1 Corinthians 10:16 Is not the cup of thanksgiving for which we give thanks a participation in the blood of Christ? And is not the bread that we break a participation in the body of Christ? 17 Because there is one loaf, we, who are many, are one body, for we all partake of the one loaf. God moved during our meal, our remembrance of Him and what He did for us and through the worship music afterward.
So that was great and now I am on to a new week and about to have "a date" with God and then plan the already too busy week: plan ahead for Children and Youth, a trip to New Bern to see Nicholas Sparks (just kidding Val, that was for you!) really to see my mom and uncle who has been in the hospital, accountability and staff meeting, dinner with friends, presentation for the Boys & Girls club, visit the DMV (pray for that one!), band practice, Plan for Sunday, Set-up and UFC fights Saturday night then onto another awesome worship service at Discovery Church. See, I told you it was busy! But in a good way.
I love my God, my Wife, my church and my work. What else could I ask for?
3 minutes till my date, I have to go now!
