Another Reason My Wife Rocks

So, I came home from work one night last week and Beth had a mischievous little smile on her face. She said, “Guess what I got us today?” She then told me that she got us floor seats for the Trans-Siberian Orchestra concert in Cleveland this December.  Yes, I was excited. There are a few [...]

Reflections on Worship #8 – Cookout Edition

So, tonight was the Community Cookout/Corn-Hole Tournament/Concert at Rittman UMC.  This has occupied a large portion of my time over the last month and I really had no idea what to expect. Thankfully the event went better than I could have hoped for.  We had a large number of people there from both the church [...]
