Vacation was great! A week in Oregon with our friends, a week in Coeur d'Alene on my brother's boat, and a week of house painting, drive sealing, and deck finishing.
I got back to a great email. Bethany in Mount Vernon, a pastor of a Nazarene Church, has a bunch of friends who are willing to participate in a house church worship experiment. This sounds like the perfect group: from many different backgrounds, religious experiences, and perspectives. And the group is in Mount Vernon - so I won't have to drive all over the place to do a trial.
I am still thinking of how to best engage the group - the idea is to try out the format for house church worship and get some feedback on it.
I can't wait!
