I just popped open my Bloglines blog reader and noticed that Vee of Living Journey fame has nominated my humble blog for a Blog Love Award.

Thanks, Vee…and I’ll be working on that glossary…someday


This is what being the Body is all about.

Pastor Mike Newnham, of The Blog Of Which We Do Not Speak fame, needs our prayers. Last I’d heard, he was on the way to the hospital with the symptoms of a heart attack.

James 5:16.

Just read Ron Daniel’s wish list… and discovered that on top of being a great Bible teacher, rockin’ former headbanger from the ’80’s (…that’d be “my era”, though I often hesitate to admit it in mixed company… you know the old saying, “if you can remember the ’60’s, you weren’t there;” the ’80’s mantra is, “if you can remember the ’80’s… don’t admit it), and all-around fantabulous guy… he’s also a fellow Trekkie.

Rock on. Rock right on…

I just got a picture mail forwarded to me from my good buddy and fellow-laborer, John George, that he got from the Empies… they’ve made it to New Mexico and… well, how about I just quote my good buddy and fellow-laborer, John George’s e-mail…

Just got a call from Ray, they are in Albuquerque eating BBQ next to one of Sherri and my favorite restaraunts! He took this picture earlier today. He said that he repacked things so the trailer wan’t so squirrelly, and he can “drive 80 now ifhe wants to”. He said Steven is kinda sick, Maria is at the top of her game, and Molly is ” surviving” Those Empies ROCK!!!

Today was the annual Muskegon Air Fair, and since our new building (the
Alstrom Building) is near the airport, we met this morning at our home to
combine Sunday worship with a going-away cookout for the Empies.  The study
this morning was the first part of 1 Peter 4; then we watched a video that we
put together for the Empies – a slideshow of their time in Michigan, and of
friends they’d made while here, to remember us all by when they get to

we watch the video (if you look closely, you’ll see Ray’s face on the screen)

…then we prayed for the Empies…

the McVanells, from Colorado, who moved to Ludington to plant a Calvary Chapel, visited

Jeff and Maggie McVanell

Ray, with the McLeans

that’d be Captain Chuckie on the grill…

…no… I have no idea why they say Steven’s a ham…

So, this is very cool… Maggie and I went to hang out at Barnes and Noble with some friends, and we brought our laptops… and they have a wireless internet connection, so we geeked. God bless technology…
