Didn't go to church this morning, so I sat on the balcony and read Barna's book, Revolution. I'm definitely going to need to digest it some more, but my initial thoughts are that it paints a pretty drab picture of the current way most of us go about doing church.
A few highlights from our short weekend away:
- Dinner at L&L Hawaiian BBQ:there's a bunch of them on the islands, but I'd never seen one on the mainland.
- The dog parade: A really big deal with thousands of spectators and hundreds of people parading their dogs in goofy costumes.
- Spending 30 minutes at an Open House: We visited a 4,000 square foot home on an acre of property in the hills of Santa Barbara. List price: only 3.2 million! We decided to go just to see what the house looked like, but we must have looked like rich people who don't like to look rich because the realtor gave us the royal treatment. If he only knew my car at home is a 1991 Toyota!
- Dinner at Joe's Crab Shack: Not because the food was great, but because it took us about 30 minutes to find the place even though we were only a mile away....don't ask.
