Thanksgiving Potpurri

  • GREAT FALL - We had a record day yesterday at church with the highest fall attendance on record. The best I can tell is that we are quickly filling up the space created by adding the Classic service, and Saturday night services will make some much needed room for the Spring.
  • "I Say dear Holmes" That iTunes U has some smashing freebies out there if you like to listen to non copy written literature including many of the classics. Let's just say Sherlock is genius, dear boy, sheer genius. And a right smart traveling companion as well.
  • I had the joy of trying to translate the idea of Thanskgiving to our guests from France yesterday. In hindsight "pilgrim" was probably a bad choice of words, but I thought it funny that they refer to themselves as "strangers" as the best translation of tourist they knew. What a great example they are for us, that even though they don't know the songs, and barely understand the message that they come and worship God with us both on Sundays and Wednesdays. - I love it!
  • I'm Bummed about Jeff and Heather moving, I love those two, and it was an honor for their life together to begin at Cornerstone, and to be so intertwined with ours. They are so awesome and will do amazing things for God in Arizona, or KC wherever they land.
  • Missed Gabe yesterday, the teams did a good job and both Ray (Classic) and Michael (Contemporary) did a great job. I do however look forward to Gabe being back this Sunday.
  • I forgot to line up my fantasy football team yesterday, but they were able to once again snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
  • I cant wait to hold my new niece "Pressley" She is now 8 weeks old and I am sure that she has her mom's good looks and her dad's brains.
