Random Randomness

- I'm sitting in our newest Starbucks but may need to move to my old location for future Starbucks Sessions. This one seems to constantly smell of vinegar. Maybe a cleaning solution of some sort? It doesn't seem like anybody else notices, but I can't ignore it.

- I've been writing some small group curriculum and have been pondering the life of Paul. We're set to dedicate only one lesson to him, but the more I think about his life before Christ, his conversion, his ministry, his writings, his influence etc. it's tough to come up with only one lesson. For now I'm turning it into a lesson on dedication. Paul was extremely dedicated in each life role.....

- My family had dinner with our potential children's pastor and his wife last night. GREAT couple and I'd be thrilled if they joined the team.

- Haven't read a really good book in a little while. Any suggestions?

- Leaving to Summer Camp on Sunday which is always a highlight.

i've often wondered what [S]aul's parents were really like and how their personality/parenting styles influenced his life's ambition to be super-dedicated in no matter what he did.


i don't have anything concrete yet, but lots of good speculation and "scripture play" happening.

What about "Made to stick" I thought an excellent read and some very useful ideas.

I just got done reading '747' by Joe Sutter. Touted as the story of the development of the 747, I see it more of a book of great leadership examples, grit and determination, never giving up etc. Real interesting read. I haven't read a book that quickly for years.

"Me myself and Bob" by Phil Visher. yes the veggie tales guy. I am not a big reader but ... i hubby and i were reading it together he dosed off after about chapter 2 (cause he was beat not board) and i could not stop. I ended up on chapter 5 before i noticed. Visher is funny even though he talks about hard time where he learened some things about leaning on GOD, the hard way.
