Somehow I realized these posts from the other day did not make it on the blog. So here they are in one blog.
I recieved an email from Trinity, they received my box with my project in it. Yahoo!! Now Dr. Larsen has the pleasure of reading 'til he drops.

I had to stop at the bank, we bank in Anderson, a carry over from Dearborn. Most everyone at the bank branch knows us, mostly Debbie. She has spoken about church to one of the tellers and today I sat with her for about 30 minutes and talked about church, why go, issues of forgiveness, etc. A great conversation, and I am hoping she will come this Sunday.
It's great to have these types of conversations, when someone feels free to ask, and I can give an intelligent enough response that they can understand. God is really awesome the way He works!! We just need to allow Him to work through us.

I was really moved by the video we watched in the evening service. Ed Young was brutally blunt, and I loved it. His one prayer for the church was for the church "to wake up!" I wish everyone in the morning service could see it. He spoke to me as well as anyone about waking up from our spiritual slumber. He went so far as to proclaim if you don't tithe and serve in the church, he does not consider you a member of the church, "you are just taking up dust on the church rolls." That is an in your face comment. Anyone who wants to watch it, even in a Sunday School class, is welcome to borrow it.
The message was about 27 minutes long.It's always fun doing child dedications, hoping the little ones don't scream and cry. It's amazing the great responsibility God gives to people to parent children. I am awestruck when I look at Joshua and Zachary and see how they are growing.
We had fun at the swim party at the Dickey's. They put on quite a spread, we had lots of fun, eating and splashing and just hanging out in the heat.
