I am not feeling particularly inspired at the moment to write. Perhaps God is working on my humility because I was pretty proud of my last post. Anyway, here are a few things I have been thinking about lately.
- Tonight is the last night of a three week class I have been teaching at the South MacArthur Church of Christ in Irving on Wednesdays. I have been teaching through some ideas I read in N.T. Wright’s work called Surprised by Hope. It has been a lot of fun to prepare and teach. I haven’t gotten to do that in a while, you know, with a white board and everything. I even think those in my class are hearing and receiving a thing or two. I am thankful for the opportunity.
- I am getting ready for another conversation with the church planting resource organization on Friday. This time it will be both Amy and I with a majority of our assessors. I am optimistic and hopeful of what might come out of this. If this conversation ends up being similar to my last one, we should be pretty close to taking some short term steps forward in our future ministry plans.
- I decided to get my softball team going again this summer. We got in on a great deal in Grand Prairie. We get a 12 game season for less than what Arlington is asking for 8 games. I am really looking forward to playing with this group of guys. Many of them are Amy’s cousins. They are good players and fun to be around. I hope my back holds up through the summer. It is time to play ball.
- I am writing this post at my Starbucks. I am really thankful for the friendships I have been able to develop the year and a half or so I have been coming here. The employees are fun people and take good care of me. I often joke that I have become the chaplain of this Starbucks. I think this store can teach us a thing or two about hospitality. It has been a great place for me to office from.
- I need to pray more.
