Santa tracker

Don't miss a chance to track Santa Claus!

Less than a week till Christmas. I have Christmas Eve and Christmas Day services and sermons in the works. We had to turn in service outlines last week, so my partners and I are done with that part, in theory. The sermons are developing. The ideas are there. Now I'm coming up with words to express the ideas.

Tonight is my high school small group's Christmas party. I need to go rent The Grinch. We voted on what movie to watch. Grinch beat Narnia by one vote. (I voted for Narnia. I love that story.) I finished reading a Narnia book last week, by the way. The Horse and His Boy. I've read all the Narnia books except for Prince Caspian. It's sitting on my dresser, ready to be read. I'm using Narnia books to rediscover what a child-like faith looks like.

Group shots

These are two groups I'm privileged to work with. One is a high school Bible study I lead. We takes turns meeting in each of the kids' houses, and sometimes we meet at mine. The other group is a young adult Bible study that meets in a loft in downtown Houston. These are people my age who have become good friends during my time here.

The Christmas season is busy here at Christ the King. The irony is that other activities slow down for the Christmas season, so in terms of how many hours I'm working, there's not much of a difference. There is more of a buzz and adrenaline rush because I have more time in front of people. More services and speaking opportunities. I'm leading a service for children tonight, speaking at a Christmas party for kids whose parents are in prison Saturday, and giving the message at our youth service Sunday. Each of those takes a lot of planning. I feel like I have most of the planning under control now.

Thanks for the comments last time. Five comments is good, even if Sam is pointing how certain elements of fakeness in my last photo. :) I hope you're all enjoying the Christmas season.
