So I’ve missed a day or two on the updates…but my baby girl has been so sick, so I get a pass.
Today in the life our launch:
Shaun and I met with the guy that is going to be helping out with the music. He’s a hip-hop DJ. We and our other music guy met the DJ and his wife at Felini’s Pizza. I made a fool of myself by ordering a ridiculous amount of food (I was hungry, and am eating for two…so that doesn’t make me greedy, right?).
I enjoyed talking with his wife. I can tell she is a mature, grounded woman who cares deeply for her husband and her family’s well-being. I will be glad to have them on board, but I am a little skeptical of this whole DJ thing. I’m used to seeing a keyboardist, drummer, and some guitars. We’re instead going to have two turn tables and a microphone. We’ll see how this works.
#2-I’m working with one of our launch team members on getting Children’s Ministry up and rolling. We will be having breakfast tomorrow to go over the curriculum and purchase supplies. She will be the director. But I’ve done this before from scratch, so I am just helping with the initial organizing.
#3- Shaun and I are having a tift. I am finding it difficult to watch him do certain things in a way that I wouldn’t do. I see his many strengths, and I see his weaknesses. I try to compensate for his weaknesses, and he resents that, I think. Working out my role in this whole church planting thing is difficult. I want to help because I know I can. I’m just not sure the best approach. I refuse to fall out with him over church stuff though, so I’m going to keep my mouth shut for a couple of days (imagine that) and talk to God instead. I’ll let you know how this works and if God (which often sounds like the voice of my girlfriend Michele) says anything back!
