Half Asleep on Thursday Night

Sep 2, 2005

It feels like my mind has been consumed by the destruction and crisis in New Orleans and other areas of the south.  It just blows my mind that while I’m sitting here on my couch in my air conditioned home with a fridge full of food and very few material worries, that there are people who have no where to go or any idea what to do as they recover from this horrible tragedy.  For me, this is somewhat of a reminder of the suffering that is going on all over the world all the time.  It might be new to America, but it’s not new to the world.

On another note…

My grandmother is not doing well.  It’s pretty evident that she will probably be making her journey into eternity at any moment now.  I have been asked to officiate the funeral service; and while this will be one of the great honors of my life, I know it’s not going to be an easy one.  The more you know and love someone the harder it is to memorialize them – because you feel like no words can truly capture the greatness of their lives. 

And in closing, (see I AM a pastor…!)

These past three days I have been in meetings until about 11:00pm.  I’m starting to feel it.  I don’t normally schedule my week out like this, but I had meetings with a creative content team and our creative media team for our new series, Desperate Households, which begins on Sept. 11th.  We’ve distributed over 6,000 postcards and 4,000 small business card size invites, so we’re expecting a great response.  We’ve come up with some killer creative content for this series.  I’m pumped!

So off to bed I go.  Another FULL, FULL day tomorrow.  Keep praying for the folks down south. G’night.

  1. Scott – we’ll be praying for supernatural strength and energy as you push through this week.
    Your new series sounds AWESOME! Wish we could come down to Chicago again soon, but Ed starts school on the 8th. Maybe I will get down there with Sarah again.
    We are going to have to get the CD’s of this upcoming series though. I can simply tell by your enthusiam that it is going to ROCK!
    We love and miss you guys!
    Please post an update on how Elise is doing in school and what she thinks. We still can’t believe that she is in kindergarten.

  2. Scott – My grandmother recently passed into Glory, so I know what you are facing. Praying for you bro. I totally agree that it is so difficult to even try to formulate the words to say. I trust that God will give you strength.
    Also, great news about the new series… And invite marketing: Yippee!
