It’s Friday. Fridays in my world mean sending out reminder RSVP’s for our Sunday gatherings, planning out the menu for Sunday Dinner and starting to think about how to clean and configure our house/worship space this weekend. By this point in the week, Alan and I have usually accumulated a pile of computer equipment in the living room, the kitchen needs a little work, and the laundry status is questionable. Although I would like to share that Alan folded the laundry like a rockstar yesterday, so we’re good there. On the more technically work-related front, I’m trying to pray for the community’s prayer requests, network with other pastors and planters, and trying to finish up my notes for our weekly study through Luke’s gospel.
Right now, I’m sitting at Trabant Coffee and Chai on the ave, enjoying their americano and free wi-fi. Today, I’m also trying to plug content into Alan’s website for Sinners and Saints so we can go live by Monday. I realize there are a few things we’re lacking. We need more images, so we need to take more photos and encourage folks in our community to take and share photos. Stock photography tends to make church websites look creepy, and since we don’t have the financial means to pay for photos, it’s time to ask the church to help us out. I’m excited to work on more strategy for our community involvement, so I’m checking the schedule of homelessness trainings with University Street Ministries, and getting us on the calendar for serving meals and cleaning kitchens. And of course I’m procrastinating writing the verbage for the church website by posting on my blog.
What do Fridays look like for you?
