On the Road Again
|This weekend I will be in Oregon, both east and west. My western time will be spent mostly in and around the Portland area. As part of my job with Adventures in Life Ministry, I try to make sure I get some personal time with our participating churches from that area.|
In the east, I will be in the little community of Burns. It has become one of my favorite places to visit, not because of the area so much, but because I have so many friends living there. After 12 years of serving with us, I think I know over half of the families of Faith Baptist Church of Harney County, and count many of them as some of my closet friends and colleagues in ministry.
I will also be picking up a new lap top computer. A very good friend knew we needed something new, and graciously offered to purchase a new one for us. So we're getting a nice shiny new Mac! I've never had a Mac, so for the next couple of weeks, I'll be learning a ton about the differences between Mac's and PC's.
Meanwhile, while I am gone, check out this video. As we see the church responding to a dominant consumer mentality in the US, this little video hits a strong chord. It is appropriately titled, "The ME Church." You should also check out ME Worship on You Tube. If you grew up watching those cheesy music commercials of the 70's, it'll bring back back some good memories.
Enjoy, and when I get back next week, we'll take a short look at where the Democratic Party is with their nominating debacle.
