Galilee Baptist Church

Mar 10 2011

Sue and I went to do a show at a Baptist Church in Gorham two nights ago. It has been a long time since just the two of us went to a show together. This was for a kid's club called AWANA. there were about 60 kids there, plus adult leaders and parents. I'm really excited that I opened with a trick in my three ball routine I haven't done in probably 15 or more years. It's a trick in which I throw all three balls around my back with my right hand and go directly into juggling them. I have had arm problems that have effected a few tricks over the years, and this was one I 'lost' a long time ago. Then, in rehearsal, I discovered a slight modification that allows me to nail the trick very consistently again.

More important than that, of course, is that I believe the Gospel was clear to the audience. I don't consider what we do primarily a children's ministry, although that is often an assumption people make. However, on Tuesday night, the Lord seemed to allow me to hold their attention and communicate things in a way they understood.

Best of all, Sue and I had a 45 minute ride each way during which we could talk about our upcoming anniversary, our second daughter's approaching high school graduation, our jobs, and more. We also tried the new cheddar and jalapeno burgers at Burger King. They'ye excellent!
