Tuesdays are worship planning days. My morning starts out with a worship planning meeting at 8:30 with a few people from our church. We try to plan a week and a half out at this point. Maybe in the future we can do more, but right now it seems to work ok. If we see something that will take a while longer to plan we will plan further out. Right now we have 6 of us and I want to double that group so there are more ideas and a better representation of our congregation.
I also had the treat of leading worship for our ladies Bible class that Summer was teaching today. They are doing a Beth Moore study and I offered to bring my gutiar and lead 2-3 praise songs to get things going. It went extremely well. I'm so proud of my wife. She is such a good teacher and a humble one. I'm so lucky to have her as my wife.
The first day of Atkins went well and I'm going strong today. Summer purchased some multivitamins that are designed for people on low carb diets to give them all the nutrients they need. Yes, I said I hate exercise, but I have plans to exercise. I go walking with a guy on our praise team when we can get our schedules worked out. Summer and I are also thinking about joinging the YMCA down the street. Childcare is $3 a kid an hour, so Summer and I can exercise together.
I have some friends, Ryan and Leslie, that live in the metroplex area. They grew up with me in KY. I ended up performing their wedding ceremony. Ryan is in the reserves and is in Kuwait. Please pray for him as he will be there until March or so. Leslie spent the day with Summer yesterday and last night since our elders meeting was cancelled, I went and enjoyed my hobby. Have you heard about my hobby?
I love strategy games. I always have. The hobby I have been getting into over the past couple of years is Warhammer 40K. It is a table top war game. In short, you have little minitures of soldiers and tanks and other cool stuff and you paint them. They represent your army and then there is a game that you play that is awesome. There are many armies you (10-12) and within those armies there are different chapters that have different rules as well. Because of this every army is different and everytime you play it is different. If you are interested in this kind of thing, let me know and I'll hook you up with more info or if you are in the Dallas area, you can come over and I'll show you how to play.
Ok, here is a question that you can repond to in the comments section. In worship, what do you prefer, words on the screen with backgrounds or music on the screen?
This seems to be an ongoing debate in many churches. Let me know what you think.
