Monday Musings

    Hi all. Sharon and I attended the graduation of our third son Evan on Saturday. It was a beautiful day and a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the completion of his four-year degree. I’m so proud of him! My only question in relation to the event was the ceremony itself. Can anyone tell me why graduation ceremonies have to be so long? Is there some unwritten rule that unless they’re at least 2 hours long they don’t count? I get it. Everyone has to get their name called, go on stage, receive their diploma and get the picture of them posing with the president. After all, they’ve earned it. But, how about we have a few less speeches. And maybe only one musical moment instead of eight. Then again, maybe it’s just the fact that we have so many kids which means Sharon and I have attended A LOT of graduations over the years. Or, maybe I’m just turning into a cranky old man.
    In case you weren’t there on Sunday, next week is First Sunday Fellowship, but instead of everyone bringing food, the GEMS (as it’s GEMS Sunday) are going to provide the food. There will be hot dogs, chips and something to drink for only $5/person. So, DON’T BRING FOOD next Sunday, but bring a few shekels. FYI, the funds the GEMS raise are going to support the Esther program in Zambia, which helps fund GEMS in that country. Pretty cool. So, if you want to bring a few EXTRA shekels to donate, it’s all for a good cause.
    Say, Sharon is visiting Europe with Janessa from May 10th to the end of the month, so if you want to have a pastor over for dinner during that time, let me know. I’m available.  I’m also available to visit small groups any time. Just invite me.
