“So here’s the thing…


Filed under: Uncategorized — July 13, 2007 @ 12:08 pm

This past Sunday we had our annual “Praise in the Park” outreach.(Or Pip, as Pastor Tim refers to it.)  It’s an event involving 12 - 13 churches (most from the Detroit area) getting together to share the gospel w/ the community. We have different leaders sing a couple songs w/ an awesome back-up choir, a not-too-long sermon, free food and drinks, a dunk tank filled w/ various pastors, a bouncer for the kids, and even a “travel” communion pack so God’s children could all share in that together. It’s really an amazing time! But unfortunately, it was also amazingly HOT! We hit 100 degrees and coincidentally had about 1/2 our expected visitors. Most were probably in their A/C @ home or in pools… can’t blame them. We also had a big prayer tent set up for anyone who needed it. I thought that was a pretty good idea.

Now that being said, I didn’t get on here to blog merely about PiP. I wanted to tell you about something a bit funnier:

We brought the 10×10 travel canopy thing Dad bought us (it’s come in handy on several occassions now) and had a handful of friends hiding in the shade with us. Jason and I were sitting next to each other in camping chairs and Jan Ropp and her husband walked by wearing matching yellow polo shirts, white shorts AND matching his/her gym shoes! So I turned to Jason and said, “promise me we’re not going to become one of those old couples who start dressing alike to be cute…” So he says, “um…honey…” and I look over to notice that he’s wearing a black t-shirt, khaki shorts and black gym shoes and I’M wearing a black tank-top, a khaki skirt and black flip-flops…

Needless to say, everyone was cracking up.

    Now that’s pretty darn amusing.

    But back to Jason’s phone — hey! That thing’s COOL! Me want!
