Absolutely Useless Facts About Yourself, No One Cares About

The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

I resisted the autumn mix candy corn at Walgreens, so I have that going for me.

In order to live out Romans 16:16, I have purchased a big bag of Hershey's Kisses and drilled a hole in each one. I'll be passing them out this morning as people enter the church.

I was reminded this week how uncertain life is. A 53 year old coworker died unexpectedly. He was a fine Christian. I passed him in conversation with another worker. I thought after I passed how I could see the light of Christ in is his face. The next morning he passed from this life. He left behind a wife and three daughters. One expecting his first grandchild. It was a reminder that not one of us who saw the sun rise have a guarantee that we will see it go down.

I ripped several times in the church. Good thing the padded seats muffled the noise.

Unfortunately, the family gagging in the pew behind (pardon the pun) gave you away.

This year's Peterson Christmas pipe design is a little boring. Elegant, maybe, but it just doesn't project Christmas to me.
