Playing catch-up

I ended up speaking for about 90 minutes at church two Wednesdays ago. I know I can sometimes be longwinded–especially when I write–but that was rediculous. I wrote pretty comprehensive notes in case my extemperanous skills had waned since college. But they didn’t, really, so I followed my lenghthy notes and spoke off the top of my head a lot. Thus, I basically doubled the length I was planning on.

I felt it went well, though. As I mentioned, I talked about the ascension of Christ (read Ephesians, especially 1,2 and 4 to get some insight on the ascension). I’ll try to post the audio on my little music player in the top right sometime so you can listen to it. I’m a bit nervous at listening to it myself; I’m sure I’ll be pretty critical and it won’t sound as good as it seemed coming out of my mouth. But, it was a good start and I hope I get the chance to take another crack at it.

We did a pre-Relay for Life event today called “Hot Dogs for Life.” We grilled hot dogs from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. for the campus community. We sold almost 300, along with chips and pop and raised about $800 toward the Relay.

I joked at the irony of the title, since we all know hot dogs have nothing to do with life and probably actually contribute toward the cancer problem we’re raising money to fight. We jokingly changed the title to “Hot Dogs or Life.”

It was nice to be outside and get the first sunburned arms of the season.

NBA and NHL playoffs starting soon; pretty excited about that.
