Sunday Mind Dump - July 1, 2012

What a great day, I mean GREAT day at PCC.

Attendance was strong, the A/C was super cold, the band nailed it, and the message was in my sweet spot.

As an added bonus we had dinner on the grounds.  It was good to hang back and fellowship with so many people.

Best part is that we get to do it three more weeks in a row.

Dottie Wheelus and her team did an exceptional job planning and hosting the event for their section.

Today we talked about Baal worship, the goddess Asherah, Elijah’s boldness, being unequally yoked with unbelievers, and the power of prayer.  The picture posted here is a good depiction of Elijah’s confrontation with Ahab and Jezebel.

I think people found the part about Baal and Asherah to be the most interesting part.  All the CDs flew off the shelf within 10 minutes of putting them out.

The similarities of Baal worship in Elijah’s time with America today are eerily similar.  I might write about Baalism in America on my blog this week.

Love this new series.

I’ve been doing a lot of reading lately.  Bought three new books last week.  Can’t seem to get enough.

Going fishing tomorrow.  Hope to catch a lot of mullet with cast nets and a couple of red drum on my rod & reel.

Got a funeral on Thursday.

It’s going to be a busy week.

My garden is about spent.  Only the field peas and squash are still going strong.  I will be tilling everything under in the next week or two.  I’ve gotten a lot of enjoyment from gardening this year.

I think the best kinds of friends are those who don’t care that I look like a bum when they come over to my house.

3 out of every 5 guys named Bubba will be injured this week setting off illegal fireworks.

I’ll be playing bass guitar next Sunday.  Our regular bassist will be out of town.  We might be playing the song “Light the Fire Again.”  Great song. 

We’re also playing “Days of Elijah.”  Perfect song for this current series.

I got sunburned last week so bad that I have blisters on my stomach.  I haven’t done anything like that since I was in high school.  Pretty dumb.

I left the garden hose on the other day in my back yard and it ran for five hours.  Even dumber.

I also left the garden hose on at my garden, the hose busted in the sun, and the water ran for two days!  Dumb and dumber!

I guess I need someone to lay hands on me and shake some sense back into my noggin :-)
