It’s hard to believe that it is the last Sunday of May. Tomorrow is Memorial Day. I didn’t realize until today that the Indianapolis 500 and the Monaco Grand Prix are often held on the same weekend, as is the Coca Cola 600 in Charlotte.
Tomorrow our church will have a float in the Eldred Memorial Day Parade as we remember the fallen. We had a float last year and many have told us how much they appreciated our church being involved. I have been working on getting everything ready for that this afternoon. Once I get done with this, I will finish up.
The summer-like weather has arrived, but we have also had cool weather over the last week. This past week I ended up driving many van miles for the various schools. I was also trying to get the grass cut, but between my schedule and the rain, it was tough.
Yesterday I was honored to be ask to be part of a memorial service for a pastor that had died a few weeks ago. I was asked to be part of the worship band and played acoustic and electric. It’s been several years since I have played in a full worship band, so that was cool. The service did a great job at celebrating the life of Rev. Fred Moore. I was glad that I was part of it.
This week, I need to get ready for our local church conference, which will be next Sunday. On Wednesday, I get a chance to present our ministerium scholarship to a local student at the school’s awards ceremony.
I think once we get past next Sunday, things will slow down a bit for the summer. We did have a good service this morning. I preached about John Wesley and his Aldersgate experience. That’s about all I have. Have a great week.
