Wow, this week has seemed extremely long. I can hardly remember the beginning of the week, and am a bit of an emotional wreck. I feel like I’ve been taken for granted and mistreated, so it will be a hard bounce back, but not something that is beyond me…
So Monday I was able to take the day off, in lieu of all the extra time invested during CROSSWAY Ministry Conference, to watch the Superbowl. I got around to the Davis household in the morning to watch the game with Ben, and Mark. It wasn’t too bad a game between the 49ers and the Ravens; the second half definitely better than the first, mainly because I was going to the 49ers. There was a power surge in the middle of the game, which meant there was a 25 minute break in the game.
Tuesday night saw the ordination and induction of our new senior minister Gary Koo. It was a great service, and a great gathering of saints. I was on official photo duties for the night and managed to grab a fair amount of nice snaps, though they were captured as JPGs, due to some changed settings on my camera, rather than RAW files, which give more ability to edit the photos in a non-destructive manner.
I fought through the remainder of the week, which saw continual frustrations; from unwarranted tech support, to a light concussion, to lack of control of my domain…
For the most of today, I was debating whether or not to head to graceat6 this evening, because I wasn’t sure if I could face up to seeing so many people that I felt had let me down, but in the end I decided to put myself aside and head along.
We heard from Tony Payne who started his six week series based on the new Matthias Media Course Of Your Life. Tonight’s talk being on creation and purpose. It was a pretty good talk, more systematic than we are used to at graceat6.
In the end I was glad that I got along to church.
This week I’m praying for more open communication and transparency, less confusion as well as patience and understanding.
