Monday Mind Dump (6/5/17)

  • Had a great time this┬ámorning studying the back part of Acts 13.
  • Looking forward to preaching it this Sunday.
  • Lots of interesting missionary encounters coming in the book of Acts over the next few months.
  • Enjoyed Josh’s sermon and the service yesterday.
  • It’s funny to me how we often hear people talk about an Acts 2 church, but don’t often hear people talk about an Acts 13 church.
  • But both are pretty dang impressive.
  • Josh used an illustration yesterday of how Antioch sending Barnabas and Saul might be like sending me and a few others to Florence to plant a church.
  • Somebody asked me after the first service if that was happening.
  • I said, “No. Definitely not. God would have to audibly speak for that to happen. And that’s definitely not how we’d announce it.”
  • I got a kick out of it though.
  • Been a fun / different / weird week with my oldest two daughters out of town and just me, Molly and our two little ones at home.
  • Abby and Caitlin are on their “Nana & Me” trip with my mom, my aunt, and my cousin’s two daughters.
  • Their goal is to see all 50 state capitols over 10 years — this is year #4.
  • They’re seeing the four corner states and are having a great time.
  • We’re getting some updates every night and have talked to them a little.
  • It’s really a special thing.
  • Also interesting for Molly and I to remember what it was like when we put our kids to bed at 7pm and then had the evening to ourselves.
  • Kind of fun, honestly.
  • The Nana & Me tour will wrap up later this week in Phoenix, so we’ll be excited to see everybody.
  • In the meantime, trying to enjoy as much of the NHL and NBA Finals as possible.
  • It’s a great time of year.
  • I’d like to see Lebron & Co. repeat, but it looks like it’s going to be tough.
  • No matter what, people will overreact at every step of the way.
  • Lots of basketball left though.
  • Doing a wedding tomorrow that I’m looking forward to.
  • Haven’t done a Tuesday morning wedding before, so this should be a fun first.
  • It’s a sweet couple and I’m honored to be part of it.
  • And I don’t have to wear a suit, so that’s a big plus.
  • Getting hot out there — perfect pool weather.
  • Probably going to take a dip in the pool later today if all goes well.
  • But more work to do in the meantime.
  • Enjoy your day!
