Sunday Reflections

Filed under: Greece Mission Trip,Parkway,Sunday School,Sundays — Neil @ 9:21 pm
  • Fay made her presence felt today.
    • The lights flickering during Sunday School gave a nice strobe light effect.
    • Very limited power in the 11:00 a.m. worship service – no sound, no screens (does using screens make a service contemporary?), limited lights
    • low attendance for a time of the year that is typically high attendance
    • hot – due to the a/c being out
    • no internet access in the office
  • I did, I enjoyed the uniqueness of the 11:00 service. Sort of in the same way I enjoy the electricity being out for an hour or so at home. It can be fun to sit around & tell stories w/ candlelight, but I wouldn’t want to do for more than a couple of hours.
  • Great testimonies tonight from the mission team that recently went to Montana
  • I was really amazed at the response to the youth mission trip to Athens, Greece next summer. I had set a goal of 6 teens to go & felt like 8 would be a huge success. Tonight, I had 11 give me a definite yes & a few others still debating. I’m really amazed & will post more tomorrow about this.
  • The Olympics are over. What did I do before the Olympics? Thankfully, college football begins Thursday night!


  1. You going to the game in Ruston Saturday? We are taking Jonah to his very first State game. I hope they make him proud to wear Maroon & White!

  2. Nah, we splurged on season tickets this year. So, I’ve exhausted our state football game funds.
