Busy but good

Congratulations to yechezkiel and xallanthia, married today. May they be crowned in peace and glory.

I was hoping to go to their wedding, but had a full plate here. Worship was groovy (and better attended than it has been). Confirmation Class moved right along. We began to wrestle with what it means to accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior today, something we will come back to again and again throughout the class.

Then the youth went bowling. My first game was awful (107); but then, I hadn't bowled for a year and a half or more. My second game was at least respectable (140). Then came the Church Council dinner and meeting.

Church (Charge) Conference is next Sunday. Mucho administrato must be completed yesterday! The paper tornado must be faced. And we're late getting the budget written, so tomorrow I have to start calling people together to get that piece of business done.
