I Long For The Day

I long for the day when Coke Zero takes over the world and Diet Coke is no more.

Just another deep thought from Sam I Am

Starbuck’s Conversation

Posted: July 9, 2008 in Uncategorized

I’m sitting in Starbucks here on Ireland Rd. and behind me are two gentlemen who are about to turn 70.  Here is the real live conversation they were having that I eavesdropped on (published without their permission 🙂 :

Gentlemen #1 speaking to Gentlemen #2:  “….he said it used to be a Church of Christ [this is what caught my attention and caused me to pay attention…or eavesdrop 🙂 ].  But they changed their name to….[insert pause as he tried to remember] Living Stones.  It used to be a Church of Christ.  That is where I used to go when I was younger.  I was curious how it changed so I mentioned I would like to go to see what it was like.  So he [member at Living Stones] said, ‘‘Ill pick you up on Sunday.’  I went and it was really good.  I even went two weeks in a row.  People were really friendly and I could tell they loved my friend and his children…I liked it.

Gentlemen #2:  That’s great.

In a moment the smile on my face will calm down.  I love eavesdropping!

Yesterday 5000 VBS postcard invitations came to the church.  They get labeled tonight (if you got nothing to do and would like to help label…be at church @ 6:30 p.m.)and will go to post office tomorrow.  I’m partial to the picture on the front (but I’m not the one who designed it…or asked that it be designed that way…seriously…you can ask Jennae!  But they sure are cute kid models 🙂 )

This coming Sunday we wrap up our What’s Your Song? message series out of the Psalms with a message on CELEBRATION [Psalm 145] (Yes…that is right…we are coming out of the Betrayed, Ashamed, and Crushed tones!). 

After that, we begin a brand new message series (which follows a week of VBS) entitled – 101 REVOLUTIONARY THINGS TO TEACH YOUR KIDS!!!  We are mailing out about 10,000 postcard invitations to the South Side of South Bend and have placed a billboard on the corner of Miami & Ireland (you know…above all the construction!!!…it is there as of this morning!)  Should be great!
