a couple of tapestry things i'm pumped about

there are a couple of things in development that tapestry will get to be involved in that i am really excited about. i thought i would share them with you:

  • RESURRECTION SUNDAY!! – i’m pretty pumped about tapestry’s first easter and i am also thrilled with the way that the leadership team has decided to celebrate it. we’re going to practice a little resurrection. for the next several weeks the tapestry family is looking for things that are dead within our community. the reason for this is that that we are going to be a part of JESUS bringing life back into these things (i.e resurrection). that’s what JESUS does and what we believe HE wants HIS people to do … defeat death with life.
  • gigs/alpha groups – gigs (groups investigating GOD) and alpha groups are two different approaches at doing the same thing – providing a question friendly way of people considering the claims of CHRIST. we are looking into doing these. i am very excited about us beginning these.
  • touched twice united – a very cool ministry model through wellness clinics. what i meant by wellness is medical and beyond. we’ll get to be a part of these in stevens point with several other churches.
  • film and faith – evergreen and intervarsity are going to be doing some seminars on film and faith at uwsp and al (the pastor of evergreen) is nice enough to let us in on this. we have some pretty cool pastors in point.

i don’t know when we will get to start each of these (except for easter) but i am thrilled that we will get to start them. tapestry is fun.

thanks to a little help our friend sharon walters pam has now learned how to make spectacular gumbo. mmmmmmmm, its good. nothing quite like a hot bowl of gumbo on a cold day.

many of you may not know this but i married the best cook i have ever known. i didn’t plan it out. in fact, when we married pam wasn’t an incredible cook. don’t get me wrong, she was a good cook then, but i didn’t know that she would turn into an amazing cook. the best part of all is that she gets better and better each year. she finds herself a challenging course and then slowly but surely figures out a way to cook it and improve upon it.

the good news for the tapestry leadership team is that there is a good chance that at least some of the gumbo will be left for our thursday night meeting. that is if i don’t eat it all.

i guess everyone is posting about the inauguration today but i’ll avoid that other than saying that i am too much of a cynic to think that the world has changed based on an election (other than the fact we americans have our first non-anglo president – which is HUGE) and i haven’t been brainwashed enough either to think that the world is going to end because of an election. truthfully i’m annoyed by the groups on both sides of the political spectrum who look for messiahs in elected officials. the fruits who thought GOD’s kingdom had come to earth because of the election of george w drive me just about as crazy as the ones who presently seem to think the same thing about barack. of course, none of this applies to my friends. 😉

see what you made me do…i ended up talking about the inauguration a little.  anyhow, i thought i would share this photo with you. how cool is that? here’s the original source.

24 years ago


24 years ago today pam and i went out on our first date. it was actually a double date with two high school friends (eric erbskorn and amy carpenter – now amy fallin). we celebrated by going out for lunch – woohoo! on a whole, i would say that date worked out pretty well.

SIDE NOTE – i also caught my first fish of 2009 today and got yet another chance to go cross country skiing – making it 4 days in a row that i have done so.
