Growing Small

While away from our congregation, the youth group had shrunk a bit.  So, it was fun to see it grow again last week.

Back with the Band

I was invited to play in the worship team of my home church.  It was wonderful to be back and to play along with these wonderful people.  God sure is good!

Opening a door

 
We’ve been praying for a pastor all year for our church and it seems like God has answered our prayers.

More Tastes

We had a chance to visit a favorite restaurant of mine in Central California where they serve one of my favorite meals, pea soup.  To add a bit of humor to our meal, we posed for this picture at the place.

Nothing like family…

While our time was short, together, this summer; we laughed, poked and just had fun.  
Life was just made for these moments.

What I like…

Being away has made me want to come back.  While the youth group has its ups and downs, there seems to be something in me that drives me to invest more and more in the group.  

While we were gone, my assistant took over.  I thank God for his commitment to see the youth grow and flourish.

On the water

Sunday evening, we showed a video on the Sea of Galilee.  The teaching helped me to see how Jesus watches over us even when we’re struggling or in turmoil.  While it’s not the same, we took a trip out on the ocean while away, and it was breath-taking.
