great quote

“If men and women today began by the thousands experiencing the depths of Jesus Christ in a transforming way, there would simply be no place for their expression of experience to fit into the present-day straitjackets of Christianity. Protestant or Catholic, neither one is structured to contain a mass of devoted people who long for spiritual depth. We are structured towards infancy.”
Gordon Cosby, Church of the Savior

wedding vow renewal

We held the ceremony for the Wedding Vow renewal of Neil and Diane Simmons yesterday. They have been married 40 years. I enjoy doing these renewals more than the initial weddings, with divorce rate at about 50% it is always encouraging to see those who have been married 25, 40, 50 yrs. or more.....Commitment is still a virtue.

If you would like to have your vows renewed and in need of a minister to do the ceremony. I would love to oblige :)

Washington DC

We just came back from our vacation to DC. My take on DC is that it represents both the best and the worse of America. You see the memorials etc. and patriotism, loyal and sacrifice rise within your heart. You are glad and proud to be an American.

You see the homeless and the hungry wondering the streets and all the money and space used for musuems (musuems that are to represent art and it looks like a bunch of garbage) and you are ashamed to be an American.

Great trip with the family none the less and everyone needs to make the pilgrimage at least once in their life.
