After a very hot end of week and a somewhat hot weekend (even for Summer), today was gorgeous — it was a tad humid, but the temp was nice — it’s 77 as I write with a chance of rain through the weekend. The rain over the last few months has caused our grass to grow and yesterday I cut it for the second time. It was getting a little long — especially the church grass.
I normally don’t work on Wednesdays because I like to save it for getting ready for Sunday and Mosaic, but there were things that needed to be done — so off to work I went. It was a good day and I several good workers with me. I always like when that happens. I rely on those who are doing community service, so that doesn’t always happen. We got the job that we were working on about a third of the way done. That leaves Thursday and Friday. Hopefully we will get it done and it won’t put us too far behind on our pickups of donations.
Mosaic Student Ministries
It’s Wednesday, therefore it must be Mosaic. We had a good crowd tonight and we were missing several students. We had 21 students and 7 staff. I’ve issued our students a challenge to beat by the time we depart for Staunton. My challenge is to have 40 (students and staff) on any Wednesday between now and the last Wednesday of June and I will receive a pie in the face for their efforts. We have reached a high of 38 several times in the last four years. In the next eight weeks, I want to see 40. I think they can do it.
Mosaic was good tonight — the students seemed interested in worship tonight — even when we did a “new” song. We did Every Move I Make, Famous One, and Mighty to Save. The “new” song was Famous One. But they even did that one well, maybe because they heard it on the radio (I can hope at least.)
Well, I have another busy day ahead of me tomorrow. Time to relax and get ready for bed.
