The 4th

What a beautiful night…  I’m sitting outside on our patio warming up next to our firepit listening to the last of the fireworks going off all around us.  Thelonious Monk and Miles Davis are playing in the background and there’s a nice breeze going on.  Perfect 4th of July night…

It was a good day today.  We had a couple of friends over and just relaxed with some killer ribs,  homemade mac & cheese and my wife’s German potato salad.  After bringing myself to a near death gorging experience, I suggested a walk……to Starbucks.  (Better than visiting Cold Stone, right?)

Tomorrow it’s back to reality.  We’re busy gearing up for our new summer series – "Rockin’ The Orchard" where we will be taking six weekends to journey through six decades (50′s – 00′s) of rock ‘n roll.  Each weekend’s talk will be tied in to a specific song from that era.  Should be a great time…  I’m also looking forward to taking a few weeks off from teaching this summer to do some thinking/writing/planning/dreaming and of course some much needed relaxation with my family. 

That’s it for tonight.  Off to do some reading before hitting the sack.  I just received Ed Gungor’s new book, Religously Transmitted Diseases from Amazon.  Looking forward to reading it. 

Happy 4th to all of you.  G’nite….

    Just started reading this book with my husband two nights ago. Excited about what we might learn from it. Feeling a little spiritually “dry” right now. We are hoping it will help “diagnose” some of our symptoms. So far…so good. Although I had to have my husband explain to me what a “borg” was. I am extremely Star Trek challenged.
    I have been reading your blog for a few months now. Appreciate your thoughts on church leadership and the creative ways you are communicating the gospel to the far west Chicago suburbs. My husband is from Glen Ellyn originally. Just insignificant FYI. :)
    Keep the thoughts coming…
