weekend in review: it was Easter. It was great fun, but nothing unusual for me.
on my list this week: Budgets, meetings, preparation, finding a meeting place for the Grove and my ordination doctrinal oral exam this Friday morning.
current books: Finished off the first two twilight books and a leadership book last week. I think I’m gonna go through some books and finish a few up that have been started but not finished. I also want to read Obama’s Audacity of Hope
current writing: Thinking about starting to outline and process my book ideas. It’s weird to move into this chapter of my life.
culture that’s caught me: I had a thought that every couple years churches should rent out a different space so that their members remember what it is like to be a new person who doesn’t know where everything is. It would be a good learning experience for a lot of churches.
how i’m feeling about this week: Great, feels so good to have a flurry of activity behind me and better focus on the weeks ahead. A bit nervous about Friday’s interview, but that’s silliness.
quote for the week: “Do all youth pastors have goatees?” ~my new dental hygenist
running report: Did my first run with no tape and felt pretty good. Pain at 13 minutes though so I slowed way down to make it home. I’m putting in 2 or 2.5 miles without tape now, with no pain. Anyways, did like 4 or 5 miles last week. Ran thins morning, but that counts for next week. Next big race is April 25th, where I’m gonna hope to beat 28 or 27 minutes on a 5K.
