Lenten day 23 saw me in the car a bunch. Luckily, I like my car. I tend to work a shorter day on Monday, given that Sundays can be so grueling. But today was a day in which one of my churches was providing lunch for one of the college Habitat teams. I am proud to see this little church get all involved and work to help others. It was a short moment, but a good one.
I also had to deal with parking tickets that several church members and I got yesterday during worship. Our church is land-locked with only a very small yard in which to park. Curb parking is unrestricted on Sundays but very congested. So I park against the church house wall on a yellow line. For 3 years, I have had no problem.
I called the courthouse to see about the ticket. As soon as I told them I was the pastor, they buzzed me up to the Sergent’s office. He’ll be by tomorrow to waive the tickets.
1a) Driving the speed limit–A little slack. 2:4
1b) Foul Language–I let a guy turn in front of me, then he got stuck, then I said something bad. 1:4
2) Fasting Lunch–Nope. 1:4
3) Giving up Facebook–Today, I was trying to contact the Black Student Union at WVU, they only have a Facebook fan page. I had to use it. I also checked out the red numbers on my home page and learned that a dear friend has invited me to her ordination in April. Totally worth it. 2:4
4) Reading–Didn’t fast lunch, but I did read some MLK while eating. His eulogy to the four girls killed in the church bombing in Birmingham is incredible. 4:4
5) Something between me and God–4:4
6) Visitation–Got it. 4:4
7) Guitar–Why? 1:4
