We spent our second weekend as official New Jersey residents in Ocean City for the 4th of July. I spent the entire time with two of my favorites, discovered several new awesome breakfast spots, and still have sand in my toes even though I’ve been home for the last eight hours. I can’t wait to go back.

Last Sunday, the kids at Advent crafted a chain of all the people who have told them about Jesus. I liked seeing that I graced the chain in several places.
O will be that kid in the class photos. You just wait.
The list of things Steve Rogers doesn’t understand. You can’t blame him; he was asleep for sixty years. I can’t wait for this movie.
You have to start them young. He’s already singing along whenever a choir is practicing. He’s not on tune but he’s getting there.
He seriously is a great preacher. At the end of his sermon, we laid hands on our neighbors and prayed together. He’s one of two people I know who could get away with this. This is one of my favorite images from the day.
Another bonus is that he remembered meeting me. I met him first at an ELCA Fund for Leaders banquet in 2010 and then I kept going up to the microphone at the ELCA churchwide assembly in 2013. He either has an awesome memory or I just make a great impression on people.
