Sorry I haven't posted lately. Bad blogster, bad.
Rest assured that I have plenty of cool things to talk about: church planting stuff, family conference, more thoughts on worship, how funny our 2-year old is.
But now we're leaving for vacation. Internet connection at our intended destination is doubtful. Lord willing, we'll catch up on the other side.
For less-than-light reading: because of the new mini-(soon to be major, it seems) war between Israel and Hezbollah/Lebanon, I've been reading about what exactly Hezbollah is. Here's wikipedia's helpful entry. I'm quite confused about Middle East politics. Any help would be appreciated, except from Christian radio stations, who seem to think that this all means Jesus' return is in 2.348 weeks. The best counsel I've gotten about the whole thing is to (1) pray for the leaders (1 Tim. 2:2) and (2) pray for the Christians in Lebanon & Israel. They don't get much press, but they do exist and need extraordinary amounts of grace right now.
