The downside to this morning: The hotel space where Revolution meets has been under renovation throughout the month. Long term, it will take a cool space and make it look even cooler. However, each week of the month, this will provide a curve ball of some sort. Today, we arrived to find out that the lower level, where all of gear is loaded through, was inaccessible. With that change, we lost the rain coverage of the parking garage- and had to move the truck to the front of the main entrance. In doing so, we lost time, rhythm, and our sense of dryness. All morning my feet felt like I had just ridden the old White Water Canyon ride @hersheypark.
The upside to this morning:
1. Josh Burnett is a man of many talents. He preached a great sermon, but watching the man back a truck and trailer through the light at Loew's/West Street is nothing short of impressive. Had his mirrors not fogged, he wouldn't have even needed a guide. I am told he gets this gift from his mom. If this is part of my church planting future, I am in need of much jedi training.
2. Hooray Baptism!
3. Happy Birthday, Matt Ancarrow
4. Our friend at Village Church Buffalo launched their preview services today. I don't have details, but I heard the morning went "great." Check them out here. http://www.villagechurchbflo.com/
Quick Family update:
Emery starts kindergarten in two weeks. So far, there are no reports of "Butterfly Kisses" moments from mom and dad. I may, however, rock "Sweet Child O Mine" every hour of the first day of school. Additionally, Emery is signed up to play soccer this fall. Since I (Scott) am not coaching this summer, I've decided to try and assist in her league. So, when you see the 5 year olds running sprints and setting up set pieces, you'll know why.
Reese is not playing soccer on a team this fall, but is slowly conquering bladder/bowel control. Additionally, she's memorized her first Bible verse. Hooray for both.
Scott and Amber are still proficient in bladder control . Also, we love each other.
