Sunday Night Mind Dump

And man, did she play well. I especially loved the bells during the baptism. She played a single chime at these…

Sunday Night Mind Dump

SO glad to be back at First Trinity today, after missing last Sunday with the flu. I love it! I saw Pastor’s PIT (Pastor’s Intercession Team) Crew praying with him before the 8:45 service. It is such a good feeling to know that people pray for those of us in leadership. The last regular day…

Vicious Cycle…

I’ve long noticed a human phenomenon…I’ve tried to think of a clever name for it, but the best I can come up with is: Not-Doing-It-Because-I-Haven’t-Been-Doing-It-Syndrome (I know: not too clever).

Worship sounds

Was at a party last night where a young mom from First Trinity was singing the praises of whoever got the sound to work in the Cry Room at church–it’s the room at the back of the sanctuary with a window in it for parents to take their squirmy or noisy kids to during worship….
