Chasing After

I'll be mentioning Jeb Corliss in the sermon Sunday, but only in passing. If you watch this video you'll a) be amazed, b) have a fuller image in mind when I mention him. If you have extra time, read Ecclesiastes 2 before watching the video (or, shoot, just read the whole book, it isn't long).

August is Here (with vengeance!)

I'm determined to get some blogging in. If you're a facebook person, please know you can join the Grandview facebook page and get updates there as well.

Here are the updates.

Youth Minister Search:
We've narrowed the field to 5 at this point. The search team, led by Caroline Neal, has done a wonderful job. We've been overwhelmed by the number of good candidates. We are on target right now to be able to announce a candidate by the end of the month (but we make no promises). Stay tuned.

Worship Service Changes:

This past Sunday was the first Sunday of "the switch." The traditional service has returned to the original sanctuary. The service went well. The spirit was excellent. The singing was wonderful. We have things to tweak still, but I'm pleased with the feel of the service. If I were taller we would have fewer things to tweak!

The Sermon Series:
Now we move into the book of Ecclesiastes. I love this book. Paul Helphinstine, from Harrison Christian Church, and I are working on this series together. It's helpful to have someone struggling through the same texts!

Softball Team:
Lorna Crouch sent me this picture of the softball team. They did pretty well this year. The season is over. We have a trophy (for what place I don't know!), but I wanted you to see the picture.
