Lent 23: Parking

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.

Discipline Scorecard:

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
