It is always good to get away…but it is great to get home!!
We had a wonderful family vacation …we were able to get all seven of us together which was pretty special!!
I am still recovering from jet lag, so if I slur or misspell a few words …its not auto correct…it’s the computer operator! (and Jeannine always checks:)
We are so looking forward to this Sunday. As I already shared, its great to be away, but I always look forward to coming home. We have missed the ACC family over the past three weeks and we are so excited to see everyone. This Sunday is also special because after church everyone is invited to head up to Cultus Lake where we have a picnic (bring your own food), some boats for water skiing (thank you Lode’s and Dunn’s) …plus we will be having a water baptism!! I love it when followers of Jesus make a public confession and declaration of their faith in Jesus Christ. It never gets old when I see people getting baptized! Come and witness those that are following Christ publically.
This Sunday I want to start a brand new summer series called FOCUS. I know that during the summer we use words like ‘chill, laid-back, off the clock” … which is good. We all need ‘down time’. However, as many of us know…we never take a vacation from our faith (whether we are working or holidaying). Our faith is to remain constant and in fact, summer is a good time to grow our faith and re-assess and recalibrate our lives around what really is important.
See you this Sunday (and we hope to see you at Cultus Lake after church)
