Sunday Mind Dump - June 24, 2012

Love what God did today.  It was just a good worship service all the way around.

We received communion after a brief talk.  The theme of the message and was “remember.”  The theme of the music was “remember.”  It all fell into place beautifully.

I really appreciate the way the ushers handled communion.  They served well and pulled it off expertly.

And how about that music!  Renae and her team were dead on.  That new piano player was pretty awesome too.

A lot of people, and I mean a lot, told me after service how inspirational the day was for them.  Always glad to hear this.

I often tell people that we don’t take ourselves too seriously (because we don’t), but we do take God and His Word very seriously.  We are normal people, who enjoy each others company, and that’s what makes us such a friendly place.  It seems to attract a lot of talent too.  Beyond that, we try to put together and conduct the best God-honoring, Christ-exalting worship service we are capable of.   Somehow it all comes together and seems to work.

After church today, Renae and I had lunch with two other couples from our church family.   Really enjoyed it.  This is how you get to know people.

Attendance was a little off, but giving was very strong.  I really appreciate the dedicated, tithing members of PCC who consistently attend, serve, and give.  Without them, this ministry would not be possible.

I informed the congregation today that Jim Cantore (the weather man) had parachuted in to Pensacola Beach.

July is fellowship month at PCC.  We will be having dinner on the grounds immediately after service each Sunday.  Since we can’t host the entire congregation at once, we are conducting the event by seating section – one section each Sunday.  It’s going to be a lot of fun and a great way to forge stronger friendships.  It’s a potluck dinner, so be sure to bring a covered dish.  One man told me he is bringing pulled pork lion, which means he has already set the bar pretty high.  BTW, fish sticks and tater tots not allowed!!

I’d like to give a special shout-out to all the volunteers and workers who showed up Friday night to help clean the building after a week of VBS.  It was a Herculean effort and it made today’s service possible.  Thanks!

I’ve been spending some quality time on the river in a pontoon boat the last few weeks.  It’s been very relaxing and enjoyable.  I really like living in Florida near the water.

I’m dying for some fresh mullet.  I’ll be breaking out my cast net soon because “I’ve got the feva!”

About half of my garden is spent.  Within the next week or so I will be tilling it under and getting it ready for summer planting.  Will repeat in the fall.

Renae and I bought a new (additional) freezer a few weeks ago.  It’s already filled up.

I’m listening to the news right now and they are saying we could get 20 inches of rain if tropical storm Debby stalls over our area.

The news is also reporting that Egypt has elected a new president from the Muslim Brotherhood party.  He vows to turn the country into an Islamic nation.  This has implications.

I'm looking forward to starting the new series next week:  Elijah, A Man Like Us.  I think it's going to speak to people on a lot of different levels.

July is going to be a great month at PCC.  Don't miss a Sunday.
