Since the last blog, the Broome family has been holding it down (well, that's not entirely true. You see, Lindsey hasn't been able to keep much down due to the pregnancy...but I digress). Last week, we had our first corporate family worship time with good friends of ours in Macon. The Jones' have a daughter Anna Bell's age, and we had dinner and then had a time of worship that covered the fourth day of creation. The children behaved, well, like children.
My Dad and I took Joshua fishing last Saturday for the first time. We went to a local pond to baptize my son into the world of catch and release. As we ventured down the hill and to the pond, we could see the bluegill clustering together. It was as if they knew my son was coming, and they were awaiting a nice worm buffet catered by a new Snoopy rod and reel. Long story short, my son, my fishing son, caught 5 bluegill in just a shade under 5 minutes. It was amazing! He reeled them in on his own, and made his dad and Paw Paw proud.
I've also been reading a great book by Steve Wright called ReThink. This book implores youth pastors to re-think the typical strategies of youth ministry. It has been an encouraging book thus far, and I'll give you a better review when I finish it this week.
