Busy Sunday...

Okay, after yesterday's "Bored out of my mind, I don't know what to do" Saturday, today was jammed packed.

First I woke up early to do my morning walk. (Yes, since moving I have started a morning walk. Don't make a big deal out of it.) And today was especially early because I wanted to attend the quarterly Men's Fellowship at Bethlehem. And I walked out without a key to my hotel, which when you are staying at an Extended Stay motel is a big, big deal because they don't have 24 hour staff. Thankfully I realized it right away and in the dark and cover of mist, I changed into the clothes I had in my car and went to church. After that, the office opened (8 AM) and I got back into my room, showered and then went back to church.

After church at 2 PM, some dads and kids came to help me do clean-up in the youth spaces. When your marker boxes have empty juice boxes in them, it is time to do clean-up. So we straightened, cleaned, discovered that the ping-pong table, air hockey and foosball tables are all in working condition. (Some of the kids are about to be 8th graders and can't remember a time when anyone played on those tables.) So tomorrow we go get the stuff we need to make them work.

After that, it turned out that a family in the church needed some yard work, so we all partnered up and did that. As usual, I was worthless (hence the need for the morning walks) but I did get to spend time talking to the mom of the family, which is in my wheelhouse. I love spending time with people and hearing their story and encouraging them. So now I am covered in grass, tired and headed back to the hotel for a cold shower and sleep. A pretty good Sunday, though I really, really miss kicking it on Sunday nights at youth group. August 20th can't get here soon enough...because then IT begins....

Sounds like things are really picking up for you, dude. Your organized ministry will come, but you have to love the spontaneous stuff, too! I cant wait to see what you have going on up there as well as what you have planned.

Dang! You have an AIR HOCKEY table???? I don't even have a building, let alone a youth space. I look forward to checking out your youth group some time soon. I hope you will return the favor.
