My Friday tidy office is mysteriously messy on Monday. Here’s what I found today:
1. Podcast disc – I’m very grateful to our sound and projection volunteers, as they serve behind the scenes every Sunday morning. They keep sound levels balanced, show PowerPoint shows, YouTube videos, and record the service. We actually make two recordings each Sunday. One is a CD recording of the entire service, which we have available to anyone who missed the service and would like to listen. We also make a digital recording of the sermon, which we later podcast on our website. Sometimes, though, there is a glitch, and I greatly appreciate the people in our church who have technical expertise to figure things out! The disc on my desk is from one of those guys, and I greatly appreciate it!!!
2. Letter from Lawyer – I first referred to the lawyer in this post. We received another letter this past week, the one we had been waiting for. You can read the background story in the previous post. I’m thankful to the Lord for the way he blessed our church through the faithful generosity of his people. In this case, one of members who passed away a couple years ago, made Faith Church a 10% beneficiary in her will. What a blessing! While we didn’t receive millions or anything like that, it was still a very nice gift. Please pray that we use it wisely for God’s Kingdom.
3. Pile of Old Mail – I put this in my office yesterday. After seeing it in one of our back rooms on a desk for four or five months, I decided to clean it up. It seems like it was a bunch of documents that would have been distributed through our church mailslots. Someone got their mail, put it down on the desk, and then forgot about it! I suppose we all do that from time to time. I know I do. So it gives me a reason to remind all you Faith Church people who read this to check your mailslots each week! And we would be most delighted if you’d read the mail that we put in there too.
Now it’s time to clean up this mess!
