Monday Morning Musings ...

We enjoyed another gorgeous Sunday. The weather was wonderful. We had several men gone on our annual men's houseboat retreat. That meant a skeleton worship band. Worship went well considering the missing band members and that my son-in-law (who was leading worship) broke a guitar string literally moments before the service began. He played someone else's guitar and had try and lead while adjusting to an unfamiliar guitar. He did well. The congregation did a pretty good job of connecting and getting involved. Considering how many were gone our attendance was very good. The message was fair. This one was looking at the church (us) as a chosen people. Chosen by God and that this choice is for everyone we just have to accept being chosen and that we are chosen for a purpose.

Sunday evening was difficult. We had about half of our normal number and that really seemed to mess with everyone and their involvement.

I haven't heard much from the men's retreat yet. But the early returns are positive.

Yesterday afternoon several moms of my volleyball girls came to our church and made signs for all the girls on the varsity and junior varsity teams. They worked for about 3 hours and the signs look great. They are to be put up in the gym today after practice. I have no doubt that the girls will like it and be encouraged as well. It should really add something for our match tomorrow night.

Fall is approaching fast and I am loving the weather so far. I am anxious to see more colors in the trees.

What are you looking forward to this fall?

In case you are confused by Rob's comment, he beat my fantasy baseball team in the playoffs. But alas, I believe my beloved Cubs will smoke his White Sox during the MLB playoffs. Then we'll see who is laughing.
