Escape from Miami!

Here’s the latest: 35.5 million people have no power. 98% of FPL customers don’t have service. But what’s weird is that I do. The townhouse (Which I recently sold) is fully powered (hence why I can type this). but to make a tough hurricane situation worse is that I’m in the process of moving. So what did I do while Wilma was coming through? I was packing boxes! Now I’m driving in between powerlines & downed trees to move boxes and my other goods.

But everyone’s fine. Power is restored at our theatre and we will be having church on Sunday!

If you get a chance, please pray that power gets restored and that we can find a gas station that’s stocked!

Update on Wilma

Hey Everyone,

Hurricane Wilma is literally passing over my house and thankfully everyone is fine. We just lost power. I’m writing this from my Treo. Right now, about 500,000 homes are without power. The eye should be passing us in a few minutes. Please prayfor us. There should only be a couple more hours left.

Is anybody Buying Clergy Appreciation month?

Does anybody really pay attention to clergy appreciation month? I think I’ve received 1 card in 5 years. I think some of that is because many of those in our church don’t come from a church background and this tends to be a churchy thing. I’ve always felt kind of weird about it. Is anybody with me on this? Also, why is ti a whole month? Mother’s get a day. Father’s get a day. Christmas is 1 day. So why is Clergy appreciation one month long? I don’t appreciate it…

Book Review: Now I can Die in Peace

I usually don’t read sports books, but when one of my favorite columnists, Bill Simmons, wrote a book about the last 4 years of being a Red Sox fan, I had to read it. This book: “Now I can Die in Peace” was amazing. I laughed out loud about 500 times. He captured so many of the emotions that you go through following the Sox that it was a great read. If you love baseball, especially if you love the Red Sox, you have to buy this book. It’s great!
